> Everyone seems to forget Univers which was designed by A. Frutiger in the 50' (...) Univers was the first type to come out as a system - a huge range of weights and styles and all numbered (45,46,55,56 etc).
Not only a "system", but still a systematized schema to codify, under
some very strict rules, a full range of (excellent) typefaces.
> Of course Akzidenz was already there but again not in the huge style/weight
Long Live to Univers!
