Old Modern deliberately revives elegant nineteenth-century descendants of Modern typefaces pioneered by Bodoni and the Didots. Long in serif, crisp in contrast, slender in form, the style represented Victorian social stability & self-assurance. Criticized as “mechanical” & “industrial” for a century, this self-assured letterform openly suggests contemporary prosperity. Designed in 3 weights and 3 widths by David Berlow; FB 1995–2000

Among other uses, Old Modern is recommended for Newspaper, Magazine, Book and Corporate use.
