Originally developed for academic publishing, Skolar asserts credibility and sustains comfortable reading. It has established itself as a go-to choice for all kinds of scholarly texts, no matter the field or school of thought: it handles the minutiae of linguistic, scientific, and editorial typography with ease. A classic with a twist, Skolar brings a trace of human touch to serious typography. Thanks to this knack for subtlety, it is also successfully used in other genres from branding to children’s literature.
Skolar PE has a vast character set that caters to nearly four hundred languages and transliteration systems (Pinyin, IAST/Sanskrit) using Latin, Cyrillic, and Greek (including polytonic). Its larger x-height, robust serifs, low contrast, and its deft italic make it a pleasure to read even at small sizes. With Skolar, footnotes and bibliography become readers’ best friends.
The OpenType feature set is engineered for the most rigorous editorial settings. Tabular, proportional, old-style, and lining figures as well as a full set of fractions, ordinals, and scientific superiors and inferiors will stand up to any conjectural challenge. Language-sensitive forms and compound diacritics will handle the demands of many linguistic texts. The companion families Skolar Gujarati, Skolar Devanagari, Skolar Sans PE, and Skolar Sans Arabic expand its typographic and semantic potential even further.
