Maximus®

By Linotype

Walter Tracy
Linotype
Walter Tracy designed Maximus font in 1967, when it appeared with Linotype Ltd in England. Maximus was originally intended as a newspaper typeface with two weights for small ads.
The bolder weight offered here was developed especially for emphasis within columns of text.
The alphabet as a whole has a broader design than most types to increase legibility in smaller point sizes.
This ensures that it will draw the reader's attention, especially when it is mixed with other typefaces. The capitals of Maximus font are a good choice for use as initials.
