    Alternatives to Tiempos by Klim

    Tiempos was designed with Times New Roman as its backbone... with what Kris Sowersby felt were his interpretations of improvements to TNR. Technically, TNR was based on Plantin (a Dutch-Belgian Old Style), and is thought to be the first major "transitional" typeface to the 20th century serifs.

    So, your field of choices is pretty huge.

    Depending on what your project requires: a sturdy or conservative typeface? or a typeface with a bit more "sparkle" (contrasts between thin and thick strokes)?

    You might look at Perrywood by Monotype for a sturdy workhorse...

    Or Sitka my Mathew Carter, included in Windows 8.1... a brilliant design with opticals for complex publishing needs...

    A face with a bit more sparkle might be: Coranto 2 and Capitolium 2 by G. Unger (TypeTogether)...

    And you could never go wrong with Arnhem Pro by OurType...

    Hope this helps a bit...
