None of the Above

Q. I’m doing a report on typographic systems and thought it would be great to analyze the guide that everyone uses. I can’t find anything on who designed your style guide, what typeface was used, and why. Is there a resource you can point me to or provide the information?

A. Our guide is designed by the in-house design staff at the University of Chicago Press. The book’s colophon (p. [1027] of the print edition) gives the other information you’re looking for, including information on the fonts (“Composed in Mitja Miklavčič’s FF Tisa and Hoefler & Frere-Jones’s Whitney”). You can also find the colophon at CMOS Online.
