A2 Record Gothic is a revival of Ludlow’s Record Gothic typeface designed in the 1920s and updated in the 50s. This is our attempt to unify and systemise the disparate font styles – bold, wide, condensed, and extra condensed – that were added to the family over the years by the Ludlow Typograph Company. Originating in the late 1920s as a ‘copy’ of American Type Founders News Gothic (1908) by Morris Fuller Benton, Ludlow’s Record Gothic existed as a stand-alone font in a single weight for many decades. As a result, Ludlow’s unusual hybrid family has produced a rather charming anomaly in the annals of type.
