I designed the roman fonts from, at first, URW Palladio. 
URW++ is in agreement with the kpfonts project and, consequently, approves it.

kp­fonts – A com­plete set of fonts for text and math­e­mat­ics

The fam­ily con­tains text fonts in ro­man, sans-serif and monospaced shapes, with true small caps and old-style num­bers; the pack­age of­fers full sup­port of the textcomp pack­age. The math­e­mat­ics fonts in­clude all the AMS fonts, in both nor­mal and bold weights.

Each of the font types is avail­able in two main ver­sions: de­fault and ‘light’. Each ver­sion is avail­able in four vari­ants: de­fault; old­style num­bers; old­style num­bers with old lig­a­tures such as ct and st, and long-tailed cap­i­tal Q; and very­old­style with long s. Other vari­ants in­clude small caps as de­fault or ‘large small caps’, and for math­e­mat­ics both up­right and slanted shapes for Greek let­ters, as well as de­fault and nar­row ver­sions of mul­ti­ple in­te­grals.

The fonts were orig­i­nally de­rived from URW Pal­la­dio (with URW’s agree­ment) though the fonts are very clearly dif­fer­ent in ap­pear­ance from their par­ent.
