About League Gothic Font
League Gothic Font is a display typeface that belongs to the condensed sans-serif family. It was created by The League of Moveable Type. This is a font suitable for headings. Due to the level of horizontal compression and stylized shapes, it stands out and shines in large texts.
This is the 2009 revival of the old typeface “Alternate Gothic No. 1” at the beginning of the 20th century. The typeface was designed by Morris F. Benton in 1903 for the now-defunct ATF (American Font Founder Company) foundry. The company went bankrupt in 1993, and because the original font was created before 1923, the font is in the public domain.
The League of Moveable Type decided to make its own version and contribute to Open Source Type Movement. Thanks to the entrustment of the excellent and patient people on WND.com, it has been revised and updated based on the contributions of Micah Rich, Tyler Finck, and Dannci, who have contributed additional glyphs.
League Gothic is a public domain typeface that is free to use – created as a contribution to the open-source type movement – and available for download in OTF, TTF, WOFF format (valid for most operating systems).
