Monotype Lightline Gothic Regular


Monotype Lightline Gothic Regular
Morris Fuller Benton designed Lightline Gothic in 1908. In the early twentieth century, the modern concept of type "families" had not yet been formed; Lightline Gothic is a lightweight sans serif that was designed to harmonize with other sans serif offerings from American Type Founders (ATF). Today, most type families (like Neue Helvetica) contain light, regular, bold, etc. weights of the same basic letterform design. This was not always the case. Benton's Lightline Gothic is a single typeface: it has no immediate family members. Nevertheless, it manages to integrate almost seamlessly with other sans serif typefaces of Benton's, like Alternate Gothic, Franklin Gothic, and News Gothic. The letters in Lightline Gothic appear to have been drawn with single, mono-weight lines, but on closer examination, there are subtle variations of stroke widths. This improves legibility of the overall design, and is a common element of most twentieth century sans serifs. Lightline Gothic is well suited for almost any application, including book and magazine design.
