Initiated by Charles H. Becker and finished by Morris Fuller Benton for ATF in 1928 [ATF Modern Type Styles].
There are many digital typefaces in this 1920s showcard style (such as Kobalt), and many poor digitizations of Novel Gothic (including Castcraft’s), but no faithful revival currently exists. Telenovela NF is a digital interpretation with an additional highlight effect, while Napoli and Naked Power are attempts to tame Novel Gothic’s comical personality into large, straightforward sans families.
