Bembo was modeled on Griffo's type (which some people
call Aldus's). Centaur was modeled on Jenson's.
Where it gets interesting is that according to Mardersteig
(Lawson's "Anatomy", p.81), the model for Bembo originated
from Jenson! To me, the only major thing Griffo changed was
staightening the "e"'s bar, which I feel was a mistake.
So, is all the best type really Franco-germanic? ;-)
