Skolar is a serif typeface that combines traditional and modern elements. It has a large x-height, generous proportions, and low contrast. It supports many languages and scripts, including Latin, Greek, Cyrillic, Arabic, Hebrew, Devanagari, Gujarati, and Thai. It also offers a wide range of OpenType features, such as ligatures, small caps, old style figures, fractions, and fleurons.

Skolar is available in eight weights, from light to bold, with matching italics. It also has four width variants, from regular to condensed, to fit different content needs. Skolar Sans is a companion sans-serif typeface that shares the same design principles and metrics as Skolar. It can be used for contrast or harmony with Skolar.


Skolar was designed by David Březina and released by Rosetta Type Foundry in 2009. It was originally conceived as a typeface for academic publications, hence the name Skolar (scholar in Czech). However, it soon proved to be suitable for many other applications, such as newspapers, magazines, websites, and ebooks.

Skolar has won several awards and recognitions, such as the European Design Award in 2009, the Granshan Award in 2010 and 2011, and the Communication Arts Award in 2012. It has also been featured in many publications and exhibitions, such as Typographica's Favorite Typefaces of 2009 and 2010, The New York Times Magazine's Type Directors Club Annual 2010, and The World's Writing Systems at the British Library in 2016.


Skolar is a versatile typeface that can be used for various purposes and contexts. It is especially suitable for long and complex texts that require clarity and readability. It can also be used for headlines and captions that need elegance and personality. Skolar can be paired with Skolar Sans or other sans-serif typefaces for contrast or harmony.
