Berthold, Berlin, 1905), which represented the American Type Founders' reworking of Cheltenham of 1896 (designed in turn by Bertram G. Goodhue and Morris Fuller Benton) and Russian typefaces of the mid-18th century. Paratype: A low-contrast text typeface with historical flavour. The modern digital version was designed at Polygraphmash type design bureau in 1989 by Lyubov Kuznetsova.
