One of the typefaces in Griffith’s “Legibility Group” for Linotype, including Corona, Excelsior/Opticon/Paragon, Ionic No. 5, and Textype. Lanston’s 6 point Monotype Ionic 156-J was used as a starting point.
No digital version from Linotype available, but Bitstream revived it as News 701 which is used for this sample.
Ionic No. 5 in use
