    Blado Italic
    Blado is the name given to the italic of Poliphilus. At the time when Francesco Griffo cut the roman that was used as the basis for Poliphilus, the practice of making an accompanying italic had not arisen. The italic that he cut later for Aldus Manutius was not considered suitable as an italic for Monotype's Poliphilus. A design by the calligrapher Ludovico degli Arrighi was selected, modified to some extent, and named after the printer Antonio Blado who had used it in 1539. The Blado type is a beautiful italic, usable on its own for settings such as poetry as well as accompanying Poliphilus.
