Phil Martin, creator of over 400 typefaces from the late '60s through the '80s, designed Grad as a redesign of the classic Century Schoolbook for his personal use in the early '90s. Changes both subtle and obvious have been made and many new features have been added such as small caps, old style figures, ligatures, and swash capitals. For ten years, Grad was trapped inside Phil's old DOS computer in an obsolete format. Working from laser prints provided by Phil and specimens of the original ATF Century Schoolbook, Mark Simonson has brought it into the 21st century as a family of three feature-rich OpenType fonts.

All characters, including the small caps, old style figures, and alternate characters are included in the basic Grad fonts. Supplementary fonts Grad Alt and Grad ScOsf) are included for use with programs (such as Flash and Microsoft Word) that do not yet support all OpenType features. The supplementary fonts are NOT needed at all with OpenType-savvy programs (such as Adobe Creative Suite and QuarkXPress 7).Grad Regular attributes include serif, readable, schoolbook, swash, friendly, classic, headline, text.
