Baskerville is a serif typeface designed in the 1750s by John Baskerville (1706–1775) in Birmingham, England.

Compared to earlier designs, Baskerville increased the contrast between thick and thin strokes, making the serifs sharper and more tapered, and shifted the axis of rounded letters to a more vertical position.
