It’s as if the PMN Caecilia® family was destined for the web. Peter Matthias Noordzij combined classical ductus with a contemporary vibe to create this friendly and versatile slab serif family. In addition, its large x-height, open counters, simple character shapes and sturdy serifs all contribute to the design’s high levels of legibility. With numerous weights from light to heavy, and styles including small caps, old style figures, and Central European characters, PMN Caecilia has all the elements necessary for a rich on-screen typographic mien.

PMN Caecilia

“Its large x-height, open counters, simple character shapes and sturdy serifs all contribute to PMN Caecilia’s high levels of legibility.”

Early sketches of what was to become PMN Caecilia date back to the mid-1980s, when Noordzij was a student at Koninklijke Academie vor Beeldende Kunsten (KABK) in The Hague. Early on, the design was called “Academic” but, by the time the family was released by Linotype in 1991, the name did not seem appropriate and was changed to PMN Caecilia – a combination of Noordzij’s initials and his wife’s first name.

Consistently one of Fonts.com’s Top 100 Web Fonts, PMN Caecilia sits at number 19 on last month’s list. Here’s our complete list of Top 100 Fonts.com Web Fonts for November 2016:
