What is the Janson® Text font?

Although designed by the Hungarian Nicholas Kis in about 1690, the model for Janson Text was mistakenly attributed to the Dutch printer Anton Janson. Kis’ original matrices were found in Germany and acquired by the Stempel foundry in 1919.
This version of Janson comes from the Stempel foundry and was designed from the original type; it was issued by Linotype in digital form in 1985.
In the 1930s, Janson Text replaced Caslon as the face of choice for fine bookmaking. Its strong design and clear stroke contrast combine to create text that is both elegant and easy to read.

Are you looking for a free download of Janson® Text? Most of the fonts on MartinWaitFonts.com are premium, which means Janson® Text is not a free font.

You won't find Janson® Text as a free download, so I would advise you just to go ahead and pay for it and download Janson® Text HERE. You can find some other great options here on MartinWaitFonts.com as well that will save you time looking around all over the web.

It is always best to pay for a premium font rather than trying to find an illegal download. The benefits of paying for Janson® Text are that you get the license, and if you're caught using it illegally there could be some potential legal implications with the publisher of this particular typeface.

Furthermore, when searching "free downloads" on Google, most websites will say they have them but these types of offers usually come at a cost - either something like high-pressure sales tactics or getting tricked into downloading malware onto your computer by malicious third parties who want access to all your personal information!

It's just too risky going about finding free fonts online.
