Century is underrated

Century was designed in the late 1800’s for use as body text in Century magazine. Based on Scotch Modern, a variation of Rational, letterforms, Century has grown in popularity for books, periodicals, magazines, and other texts meant to be read for a while.

There are many versions of Century, with some more rational and some more “Oldstyle.” This is usually included in the font name, so they’re hard to mix-up.
