About ATF Alternate Gothic Compressed


The metal typefaces originally produced by the American Type Founders Company are well known and well loved. From the familiar sans serif letterforms seen virtually everywhere to thoughtful revivals of historic text faces, ATF’s type designs have inspired countless fonts by other foundries.

The American Type Founders Collection builds on the ATF legacy of originality, creativity, and innovation, introducing new digital interpretations of classic ATF typefaces. Fonts in the ATF Collection are developed with the needs of contemporary type users in mind. Attention to aesthetics and usability are paramount—ATF font families build on their predecessors, offering more weights and widths, and the robustly expanded character sets and typographic features made possible with digital font technology. The ATF Collection brings the same visual richness to page and screen that handset type once brought to the printed page.
