I have noticed that PT Serif by Paratype is virtually everywhere in all kinds of websites.
I would like to know if it would be possible to trace the origins of this typeface. By this, I mean not the history of the font itself, but rather the exploration and historiography of its forms - is there a similar predecessor (maybe from decades ago!) or an earlier design that pre-dates the current PT iteration?
Thank you very much for your help and kindness.
