About this font family
The Spartan family was released by American Type Founders around 1936 as an American copy of Futura. This popular design was used in a variety of ways, from short blocks of text to headlines to advertising and packaging.
Spartan Classified was designed specifically for use at 5.5-point in classified advertising. Suitable at small sizes, the characters are wide with plenty of space around them, and the x-height is large.
