Twentieth Century

Twentieth Century is a geometric sans-serif typeface designed by Sol Hess and published through Monotype in 1959. It was designed to be a competitor to Futura, which was enjoying much success at the time. Although similar to Futura, it has a slightly larger x-height which might make it more suitable for body text.
