HistoryMatthew Carter designed Bell Centennial in 1978 specifically for AT&T Corporation (the name honors their 100th anniversary) to use in telephone books. Carter developed it to have high legibility at small sizes, and for composition on high-speed, cathode-ray-tube composing machines. (Bell Gothic, the typeface originally designed for telephone books in 1937 and for composition on the hot metal Linotype machines, was no longer usable in the new technology.) Bell Centennial is a sturdy, condensed sans-serif design that achieves great economy of space while being highly legible. Bell Centennial can be used for modern display purposes and, of course, for small print and lists. The Alternate version of Bell Centennial Bold Listing sits on a standard baseline; the original version sits far below the baseline, and cannot mix properly with other fonts on the same line.
Menu Names And Style Linking
The fonts in this family have no style links: none are a bold or italic variant of another.
You should note that selecting a style option such as bold or italic with any of these faces will either have no effect, or result in programmatic bolding or slanting of the base font, which will usually produce inferior screen and print results.
