Bernard MT Condensed font family


A great many splendid types, including one called Bernhard Antiqua Schmalfette (schmalfette means "bold condensed" in German), came from the Bauer foundry. The version is comparable to the schmalfette version from Bauer, but in fact first came from Monotype in 1926 with its unique spelling as Bernard. Bernard MT Condensed is one of a group of typefaces developed during the first 20 or 30 years of this century, yet it retains some affinity with the organic forms of the art nouveau movement. Generally, these typefaces are black, making them suitable for display and poster work. Although both bold and condensed, Bernard MT Condensed maintains a pleasant period charm due to its balanced chunky serifs and rounded strokes. Use it in situations where you want to get attention while maintaining a casual tone.
