On this date in 1706, John Baskerville was born. The famous English printer, who produced the "Baskerville Bible" in 1763, was a freethinker. He instructed that he wished to be buried in unconsecrated ground, and composed his own freethinking epitaph. By interesting coincidence, the typeface used by Freethought Today, the publication of the Freedom From Religion Foundation, is Baskerville Times. D. 1775.
