Linotype Syntax Serif is the serif typeface that complements Linotype Syntax today called Syntax Next, both created by Swiss type designer Hans Eduard Meier in 2000. With this new design, Meier has at last given shape and structure to the invisible muse that inspired him in the 1950s when he conceived his monoline sans serif based on humanist or Oldstyle letterforms. The calm legibility of this workhorse text family is accented by Meier's signature of subtle dynamic movement, making it ideal for longer texts in books and magazines. Linotype Syntax Serif has six weights from light to black, with matching italics, as well as small caps and old style figures, for a total of 30 weights. It combines harmoniously with the other Syntax typefaces, Syntax Next and Linotype Syntax Letter.
