Font designer Tom Chalky created Brixton as his first ever (and one of his best-selling) font families. He redesigned it in 2015, and it’s now available in three weights. Brixton features a distinctive, decorative style with a hand-drawn feel and alternate characters. It’s perfect for when you want a serif that’s not too serious and has some engaging personality. Download for free from Dribble, and be sure to check out Chalky’s other font families.
A more bookish choice is Modum by The Northern Block. This family features a modern serif designed for typesetting long passages of text. It also includes a selection of alternative lowercase letters, small caps, and ligatures, and is perfectly suited for complex hierarchical projects like newsletters, magazine layouts, and text-based books.
