Bell is a facsimile of the typeface cut originally for John Bell by Richard Austin in 1788, using as a basis the matrices in the possession of Stephenson Blake & Co. Used in Bells newspaper, The Oracle, it was regarded by Stanley Morison as the first English Modern face. Although inspired by French punchcutters of the time, with a vertical stress and fine hairlines, Bell is less severe than the French models and is now classified as Transitional. Essentially a text face, the Bell font family can be used for books, magazines, long articles, etc.
