Benton Modern Text was first prepared by Font Bureau for the Boston Globe and the Detroit Free Press. Design and proportions were taken from Morris Fuller Benton’s turn-of-the-century Century Expanded, drawn for ATF, faithfully reviving this epoch-making magazine and news text roman. The italic was based on Century Schoolbook.
These new display cuttings were prepared by Dyana Weissman and Richard Lipton.
Among other uses, Benton Modern is recommended for Newspaper, Magazine, Book and Corporate use.
