ParaType releases PT Serif, a new free libre typeface
ParaType, a Moscow based type foundry, has just announced release of its new free libre typeface called PT Serif. Just like PT Sans, the first ParaType's libre font released exactly a year ago, the new typeface is sponsored by Russian Federal Agency for Press and Mass Communications.
PT Serif is a universal antiqua in six typefaces, specifically designed to complement previously released PT Sans, matching its metrics, contrast and weight. The faces are: PT Serif Regular, Italic, Bold and Bold Italic, and PT Serif Caption Regular and Italic.
Since the idea behind both typefaces (Sans and Serif) is to be a sort of national typefaces, PT Serif has extensive coverage for alphabets used in Russian Federation (54 ones covered) and also has a pretty decent coverage for Latin based alphabets (Basic Latin, Latin-1 Supplement, Latin Extended A, B and C, Latin Extended Additional) and basic coverage of mathematical operators.
