Background

A scotch face designed for the New Times newspaper chain. Chronicle Text had to be sturdy enough to cope with the trials of newspaper printing, where the low quality paper and breakneck printing speeds often cause hairline serifs to disappear.

Chronicle was designed to work well under any conditions. It includes four different grades, which get progressively more robust while maintaining a common width. This allows different branches of a newspaper to choose the grade most suited to their printing press, without having to set any of the content from scratch .
