What is the Century Old Style™ font?
Morris Fuller Benton designed Century Oldstyle between 1908 and 1909. The design echoes the proportions of Century Expanded with its fairly large x-height, short ascenders and descenders, and large capitals, but Century Oldstyle has old style serifs. Century Old Style is still renowned for its readability and is a good typeface for magazines and other publications.
