Ever since the beginning of the 20th Century, sans serif typefaces have been used more and more often. Many of the “old style” sans serifs have been redeveloped recently; Frutiger, Univers, and Helvetica have all been extended by Linotype, in many cases with the help of their original designers. These updates have brought these favorites in line with the cutting-edge digital technology used by many typographic designers today.

Headline fonts for books and magazines have much more experimental freedom in their design and usage parameters. Many times, these fonts are used to express the sentiments of a magazine’s producers, or to help carry along the theme of an article. Of course, especially unusual headlines can become part of a book or magazine’s identity, and curiosity around a font can help generate readership.

Contemporary designers often use typewriter fonts to give their work a nostalgic feeling. Often, these fonts are used in books when a passage, quotation, or insert requires the mechanical appearance of a typewriter, or other primitive writing machine. Many Fanzines and “independent” magazines use typewriter fonts in experimental design layouts.
