Whitin Black

Whitin Black and Whitin Black Condensed are metal typefaces issued by ATF in 1963. They were discontinued in 1968. The name came from Whitin Machine Works, of which ATF had become a subsidiary in 1960. Whitin Black evolved from Bold Antique. Mac McGrew: Bold Antique was designed by Morris F. Benton in 1904 and issued by ATF in 1905. Bold Antique Condensed was drawn by Benton in 1906 and issued in 1908 or 1909. As plain, thick-and-thin, square-serif typefaces of considerable weight, they enjoyed many years of popularity. The unusual lowercase fwith the crossbar bracketed at upper left was later replaced by one more like the condensed version, but the original style remained in f-ligature combinations and in most sizes of the Monotype copy. Compare John Hancock, Contact Bold Condensed.

For digital versions, see the free Whitin Condensed Black created in 2015 by Claude Pelletier, and Opti Antique Bold (by Castcraft).
