Lineales

Lineales

The first typefaces without serifs were created at the beginning of the 19th century in England, their distinguishing feature being an optically consistent line weight. The "grotesques" as they were formerly called, appear constructed, although there are typefaces which show an individual touch. Curiously enough, these typefaces are regarded as the true incarnation of the 20th century, when a hitherto unknown range of versions was created, from the lightest to the heaviest, from extremely condensed to extremely extended.
