Times New Roman is a serif typeface. It was made for legibility in body text. It was created by the British newspaper The Times in 1931. It was conceived by Stanley Morison, the artistic advisor to the British part of the newspaper. This was in collaboration with Victor Lardent, a lettering artist at Times advertising department.

The font is no longer used by the Times. But it is used most in book and general printing. It has become a standard typeface used on most computers.

As a typeface used for newspaper printing, Times New Roman allows tight line-spacing and a condensed appearance. It made its first appearance in the Times on 3 October 1932.[1][2]
