Bradford is a serif typeface designed by Laurenz Brunner and published through Lineto in 2018. Conceived as a longform text face, Bradford is Brunner’s first serif family and was developed over the span of ten years. The design was inspired by Römische Antiqua, a serif face from 1884 that went on to be a major influence on Plantin and Times New Roman. The family is available in seven weights with matching italics, as well as a monospaced companion.
