Metro Nova. A rediscovered classic with a new look

Introducing Metro Nova_mf
With Metro® Nova type designer Toshi Omagari is presenting a revival of the classic font, Metro, designed in the 1920’s and 30’s by William Addison Dwiggins. The rediscovery of the original design thus shows a facet of the popular font, which has been largely unknown until now.Metro Nova comprises seven weights, from ultra thin to extra black in regular proportions, and six weights as condensed designs. Each has an italic counterpart for a total of 26 fonts.
The family is available as OpenType® Pro fonts, which provide for the ability to easily insert typographic features such as ligatures, fractions and alternate characters. Pro fonts also offer an extended character set to support most Central European and many Eastern European languages.

As a classic font with a modern aura Metro Nova is thus a strong typographic all-rounder, with the capacity to master the most diverse tasks to perfection.
