Background

Utopia is an Adobe Originals text face designed by Robert Slimbach in 1989. It combines the vertical stress and pronounced stroke contrast of eighteenth-century Transitional types like Baskerville and Walbaum with contemporary innovations in character shapes and stroke details.
Utopia has four weights with four optical sizes for each, plus a titling font, all of which combine to make a flexible family of types that is excellent for a range of applications from corporate communications and advertising to book and newspaper publishing.

U.S. Patents Des. 324,063; and 317,323.
