Ludlow’s response to Futura, initially released as 3 weights in 1930 and gradually expanded until the 1950s. Commonly used for display headlines in advertising, ephemera, and newspapers.
Only two (incomplete) digital versions exist: Tempo Heavy Condensed from Linotype, and Red Rooster’s Tempo Grunged (or Grunge), a rough rendition based on the Medium weight.
