About this font family
American Type Founders released the pattern for this typeface under the name “Thermotype”. In the days of cast-metal foundry type, copyfitting headlines could prove problemmatic at times; this typeface, with a wide uppercase and narrower lowercase of exactly the same “color”, allowed stacked lines of type to be composed with uniform width. Clean, crisp and practical.
Both versions of the font include 1252 Latin, 1250 CE (with localization for Romanian and Moldovan).
