About ATF Headline Gothic Font Family


ATF Headline Gothic cries out to be used in headlines, and that is exactly how it was used after it was first created by American Type Founders in 1936 with newspapers in mind. It would be hard to imagine a better typeface for a shocking, front-page headline in a scene from an old black-and-white movie. With its all-caps character set, and its big, bold, condensed design, ATF Headline Gothic is the epitome of its name. “Extra! Extra!” The style of ATF Headline Gothic recalls the bold, condensed gothic display faces of the 19th century, but with more refinement in its details than many large types of the time (typically wood type). Its most recognizable trait is the restrained, high-waisted M, with short diagonal strokes that end with their point well above the baseline; this avoids the sometimes cramped look of a bold condensed M with a deep “V” in the middle, common in many similar headline faces. The digital ATF Headline Gothic comes in a single weight, all caps, like its predecessor, but offers two styles: one crisply drawn, and a “Round” version with softer corners, to suggest a more “printed” feel, reminiscent of wood type. Of course, in either style it includes a full modern character set, including symbols such as the Euro, Ruble, and Rupee, that didn’t exist in 1936.

About ATF Collection

The typefaces originally produced by the American Type Founders Company are well known and well loved. From the familiar sans serif letterforms seen virtually everywhere to thoughtful revivals of historic text faces, ATF's type designs have inspired countless fonts by other foundries. The American Type Founders Collection builds on the ATF legacy of originality, creativity, and innovation, introducing new interpretations of classic ATF typefaces. Fonts in the ATF Collection are developed with the needs of contemporary type users in mind. Attention to aesthetics and usability are paramount; ATF designer font families build on their predecessors, offering more weights and widths, and the robustly expanded character sets and typographic features made possible with digital font technology. The ATF Collection brings the same visual richness to page and screen that handset type once brought to the printed page.
