News Gothic

From Simple English Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The News Gothic font.

News Gothic is a sans-serif typeface made in 1908 by Morris Fuller Benton. The typeface was used by his company, American Type Founders.[1] News Gothic is like Franklin Gothic, but much lighter.

News Gothic, like other typefaces made by Benton, is a grotesque model. It resembles other serif typefaces made in the time period. The letters are compact, and the descenders (like the tails of g and y) do not go down far. It is different from other sans-serif typefaces, because it is light and has more open letters.
