Skolar

Skolar is a text serif designed with scholarly and multilingual publications in mind. The typeface maintains its credibility while incorporating a subtle personal style, neither neutral nor conspicuous. Prominent serifs and low-contrast modulation add to its robustness. That, together with a relatively large x-height, makes for improved readability at small sizes.
