New Millennium is one of three font families that share a common name, a common design philosophy, a common x-height, and basic character shapes. (The others are New Millennium Sans™ and New Millennium Linear™; all three work well together.) New Millennium is a serif face of what some might describe as a “modern style” But although it does has flat serifs, it differs markedly from, say, Bodoni or Didot—especially in the italic. (The bold styles are in fact sans-serif, identical to those of New Millennium Sans.) There's also a nice, dark Headline style for display text. New Millennium is a distinctive, legible, accessible text face well suited to multiple uses.
