About the typeface

Named after Victor Lardent, the artist tasked with the creation of Times New Roman, this no-frills take on the transitional genre walks a thin line of type equally poised both for display and text setting—all whilst managing to remain casual about it.

Conceived as an universal serif face covering Latin Extended-A, i.e. Western European, Central European & Southeastern European languages. Add plenty of bonus symbols and case-sensitive forms into the mix and you get Victor Serif, a true modern workhorse.
