Based on work of a famous Czech-American type designer of yesteryear; Bitstream calls this family “Transitional 551”, but we chose a less alluring moniker.
He’s more than “a Czech-American type designer of yesteryear.” He’s the great Rudolph Ruzicka and the typeface is Fairfield. If you’re going to be honest about using a model (which is commendable), the least you can do is name it and its author.
Update: The page has been edited with a link to the Fairfield wiki page, but no mention of the name itself or Ruzicka. Shielding from Linotype’s lawyers, I assume.
