Poor Richard is a decorative old style serif font family with a small x-height.
It was designed by Paul Hickson and Steve Jackaman in 1997, and is based on the Keystone Type Foundry design circa 1919. The lowercase ‘g’ from the original design that resembles a figure eight is still available as an alternate character.
Poor Richard has a homely, old-fashioned renaissance feel, and showcases a few disconnected figures that are reminiscent of stencil typefaces. It performs admirably at all sizes.
