Skolar is a robust text typeface designed to address the needs of serious typography. It has been used extensively across diverse platforms and purposes. Skolar’s letterforms follow conventional proportions allowing for comfortable reading. It maintains credibility while incorporating a subtle personal style.
Features such as its relatively large x-height, robust serifs, and low contrast make Skolar a reliable choice even at small sizes and for the most complex editorial and academic text settings.
