Poynter Agate

20 Styles

A readable Agate must be set at the smallest sizes on newsprint and printed at high speed. Basic legibility demands that every character must be reduced to the ultimate in simple, effective, sanserif shapes. Using the Morris Fuller Benton drawings at the Smithsonian as a point of departure, David Berlow developed Poynter Agate from his long experience drawing complete agate series for 6 major newspapers, including the NY Times; FB 1997–2008
