Designed by Wadsworth A. Parker for ATF (that’s American Type Founders, not Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms) in 1927, this font was originally called Modernistic. Since it ain’t so no mo’, I gave it a new name more in line with its place in history. Suitable for short headlines in large point sizes, unless you really want to torture your readers. The freeware version is uppercase only; my commercial font, Metro Retro Redux has lowercase letters, as well as a complete Adobe character set.
