Don’t treat me like a potato

Life font was designed in 1964 by W. Bilz and marks the beginning of a new generation of newsprint fonts. The Ionic style had replaced Modern Face and was now replaced by this new innovative style, which mixed elements of Old Face, Transitional and Modern Face forms. Life's characters are based on the forms of Times and are the result of a time of change and experimentation.
