Monotype Imaging has released the 14-font Classic Grotesque typeface suite from designer Rod McDonald.
The newest member of the Monotype collection available from, Classic Grotesque was inspired largely by the Monotype Grotesque design released in 1926 — additionally borrowing from two other period influences, Venus and Ideal Grotesk. The result is a strong, versatile performer that features seven weights, each with a complementary italic. This modern version of a typeface based on influences from another era will work equally well in ads, books and even on the small screen, according to the folks at Montotype.
