“The Benton Modern series started in 1997 with Tobias Frere-Jones’s design of text styles for The Boston Globe and the Detroit Free Press. Form and proportions are inspired by Century Expanded, Morris Fuller Benton’s great news text typeface for the American Type Founders Co. from around 1900. The italic is based on Century Schoolbook Italic. Over the years the initial family was expanded and augmented with new styles and size-specific designs by David Berlow, Richard Lipton, Christian Schwartz, and Dyana Weissman.” — Webtype, 2015.
