Typographic Ornaments: Minion Pro

I looked through the glyphs on Indesign and found Minion Pro. Screen Shot 2016-12-14 at 12.05.20 AM.pngMinion Pro is a serif typeface created by Robert Slimbach, released in 1990 by Linotype for Adobe Systems. Minion was inspired by late baroque type, but still has a modern feel. It is a popular on-screen typeface. (This reminds me of an article I read the other day by Matthew Carter, posing the question “What makes a typeface suitable for print or on-screen?” when someone told him that the Verdona font is meant for on-screen use.)

I love the ornaments in Minion Pro. My favorites are the bullets representing leaves and flowers.
