Plantin

Plantin is a Transitional serif typeface originally designed by Fritz Stelzer and Frank Hinman Pierpont in 1913. The design was based off a sixteenth century typeface by Robert Granjon and named after Renaissance book printer Christophe Plantin. Plantin was one of the main typefaces that inspired the design of Times New Roman.
