Just because I can't seem to stop being bothered by this-- the serif vs sans legibility argument ship sailed a long time ago, use whichever one you prefer. Even aside from that, though, TNR is not a well-designed typeface. It's everywhere partly because it was one of the defaults in Windows for years, and well, let's just say that typography wasn't a priority for them the same way it was for Apple


You want to use a serif face to look more refined or smart or whatever? Great! Try Minion, or Frutiger Serif, or any one of thousands of well designed ones. Goudy made a bunch, and they were all bangers

I see you reaching for that Copperplate, that's not what I meant, put it down
