Alternate Gothic No2
Alternate Gothic was designed by Morris Fuller Benton for the American Typefounders Company (ATF) in 1903. A version for the Intertype machine was released in 1958. The style of Alternate Gothic is in the 19th Century manner. All three weights of Alternate Gothic are bold and narrow. In fact, this face is essentially a condensed version of Benton's other well-known sans serif types, like Franklin Gothic® or News Gothic®. In the early twentieth century, the modern concept of type "families" had not yet been formed. Although Benton designed his sans serifs to harmonize with each other, they were given different names. Robust, dark, and coolly competent, Alternate Gothic is a good choice when strong typographic statements must fit into tight spaces.
