Lyon Text is a serif typeface designed by German designer Kai Bernau and published through Commercial Type in 2009. It was the first typeface released through Commercial Type from an outside designer. The design of Lyon draws inspiration from the sixteenth century work of Robert Granjon while still retaining a contemporary look. The typeface famously made its debut in the New York Times Magazine. Lyon Text is available in five weights with matching italics.
