Raleigh was produced in 1977 by Robert Norton based on Carl Dair's Cartier typeface which was designed for the 1969 Montreal World's Fair. It was renamed after Dair's death. Adrian Williams added three weights for a display series, and Robert Norton developed the text versions. A contemporary old style serif with calligraphic features. For use both in text and display typography. Cyrillic version was developed at ParaType in 2001 by Vladimir Yefimov.
