Originally cut in metal in 1937, Bernhard Modern seems to presage the demise of letterpress printing and the eventual rise of digital typography. Witness this comment on the typeface by its designer, Lucian Bernhard: My aim was to get all the spice and contrast into the contour ... without counting on the ink spread. Lucian Bernhard was one of this centurys eminent graphic designers, and Bernhard Modern is his enduring masterpiece of type design.
