Schools using Times New Roman

Times New Roman is the quintessential newspaper typeface of the Anglo world. Designed in 1931 by Victor Lardent under the direction of Stanley Morison, it made its world debut for The Times, a newspaper published in London since 1785. Although The Times no longer uses the typeface, it has become widespread in book typography. While Georgia was designed as an improvement on Times New Roman for the screen, Times New Roman holds up surprisingly well in digital applications given its original intent as a typeface designed for ink and paper. It maintains a sense of authoritativeness, a no-nonsense yet elegant typeface that draws a direct line back to the Roman capitals carved into stone some 2,000 years ago. Since Windows 3.1, Microsoft has included Times New Roman as a default font on its operating system, keeping it alive as a standard-bearer of seriffed typography for a whole new century.
