Rockwell [Frank Hinman Pierpont]

Rockwell is a slab serif typeface designed at Monotype in 1934 under the supervision of Frank Hinman Pierpont. Rockwell is geometric (very circular O and o) and distinct (A has a roof). Because of its monoweight stroke, Rockwell is primarily a display face. Rockwell is based on an earlier, more condensed slab serif design called Litho Antique (1910, Inland Type Foundry). Litho Antique is considered as the first geometric slab serif typeface.

This typeface is called Geometric Slabserif 712 at Bitstream, and L850 Slab, Rambault and Stafford at SoftMaker.
