German artist Johannes Plass created the strongly crafted Linotype Atomatic in 1997. Linotype Atomatic seems to mirror the fast pace and technology of modern times, and is reminiscent of the metal lettering found on the backs of automobiles during the 1950s and 60s. The slight lean to the right gives an impression of speed and movement. Linotype Atomatic is intended exclusively for headlines in larger point sizes.Linotype Atomatic is part of the Take Type Library, selected from the contestants of Linotype's International Digital Type Design Contests of 1994 and 1997.
Linotype Atomatic supports 107 different languages such as Spanish, English, Portuguese, German and French in Latin scripts. (Please note that not all languages are available for all formats.)
