Benton Modern

4 Styles

Benton Modern was originally undertaken by Tobias Frere-Jones to improve text at The Boston Globe. Widening the text face for the Detroit Free Press, he returned Century’s proportions to Morris Fuller Benton’s turn-of-the-century ATF Century Expanded, successfully reviving the great news text type. The italic, based on Century Schoolbook Italic, was designed by Richard Lipton and Christian Schwartz, who also added the Bold; FB 1997–2001

Benton Modern was part of our Readability Series which offered text grades. If you require a specific grade or all grades, they are available for license at retail pricing. Please call 617-423-8770 or email us with your inquiry.
