Benton Modern

Benton Modern is a serif typeface originally designed by Tobias Frere-Jones and later expanded upon by Richard Lipton and Christian Schwartz. It was first published through Font Bureau in 1997. The italic is based off of Century Schoolbook. The family is available in six weights with matching italics, four widths (standard, condensed, extra-condensed and compressed), as well as a text version.
