Bell is a serif typeface designed in 1788 by English punchcutter Richard Austin under the guidance of John Bell. The design is oftentimes considered the earliest example of the Scotch Roman genre of typeface design. Although the design is fairly high contrast, it still makes for a readable text face—many books published in the twentieth century have been set using Bell.
