Background

The inscription on the base of the Trajan column in Rome is an example of classic Roman letterforms, which reached their peak of refinement in the first century A.D. It is believed that the letters were first written with a brush, then carved into the stone.

These forms provided the basis for this Adobe Originals typeface designed by Carol Twombly in 1989.
Trajan is an elegant typeface well-suited for display work in books, magazines, posters, and billboards.
