Erbar, created from 1922 onward by the German designer Jakob Erbar, was one of the first and most popular of the new gemoetric sans serifs of the 1920s. Revived by Linotype during the late 1940s and 1950s, the more condensed versions of Erbar became mainstays in newspapers on both sides of the Atlantic. Today Avenir Next and Futura are more popular, and available in a wider range of weights and versions. Another sans serif typeface from the 1920s and 30s that is little know outside of the newspaper world, but worth a second glance, is W. A. Dwiggins' Metro family (Metrolite, Metromedium, and Metroblack).
