Futura is a geometric, serifless type designed by Paul Renner for Bauer Typefoundry in Germany in 1927, and features reproportioning which at first seemed radical in relation to the traditional gothics. It first gained popularity in America as imported foundry type. The first copies in the country were made by Baltimore Type under the name Airport. One source says it was cut from original Futura drawings, but most likely it was electrotyped from imported fonts. Note the similarities among Futura, Spartan and Twentieth Century–they are essentially copies of each other. From the Second, Revised Edition of American Metal Typefaces of the Twentieth Century, by Mac McGrew. We are earnest collectors, restorers and docents of the letterpress trade.
