In 1937, Morris Fuller Benton designed Empire, titling capitals that became the headline style for Vogue. In 1989, David Berlow revived it for Publish magazine, adding an italic and a lowercase, both unavailable in the original. He revisited Empire in 1994 with Kelly Ehrgott Milligan, adding two heavier weights, small caps, and an elegant set of Art Deco-flavored oldstyle figures, ultimately expanding it to a seven-part series; FB 1989–94
Among other uses, Empire is recommended for Magazine use.
