Background

In 1995, David Berlow cut FB Moderno for Esquire Gentleman and Reforma from a TrueType pole of Giza. Berlow conceived FB Moderno using Apple’s (later abandoned) GX technology to interpolate between two 19th century serif styles, a “slab” and a “modern”

The Montreal Gazette expanded the family under Louise Vincent. Cases i Associats added even more weights for La tampa in Turin.

Among other uses, Moderno FB is recommended for Newspaper and Magazine use.
