Appleyard is a transitional serif font family that combines the elements of a modern serif and old-style typefaces.  It is loosely based on an old Monotype design called ‘Prumyslava.’  Appleyard was designed by A. Pat Hickson (P&P Hickson) exclusively for the Red Rooster Collection and produced by Steve Jackaman (ITF) in 1992.

The typeface’s rounded serifs give it a sophisticated, warm, and friendly feel; it excels in projects that need a delicate touch.  Appleyard was designed with legibility in mind, and is ideal in children’s books and for young readers.
