Publisher: The Fontry
ARB 85 Poster Script was designed by Alf Becker, Michael Adkins and released by The Fontry. ARB 85 Poster Script contains 2 styles and family package options. p > Beginning in January, 1932, Becker, at the request of then-editor E. Thomas Kelly, provided SIGNS of the Times publication's brand-new Art and Design section with an alphabet a month, a job forecasted to last just 2 years. Misjuding the popularity of the 'series,' it instead ran for 27 years, ending finally 2 months prior to Becker's death in 1959, for a grand total of 320 alphabets, a nearly perfect, undisturbed run. In late 1941, nearly 10 years after the very first alphabet was published, 100 of those alphabets were compiled and published in bookform under the title, '100 Alphabets,' by Alf R. Becker.

As released in January, 1939, this is the description that accompanied Becker's 85th alphabet, Modern Poster Script:

This is MODERN POSTER SCRIPT-- Alphabet No. 85, an appealing design with swing and highly ideal for contemporary poster and card work. It is heavy and vibrant, yet stylish, and it can be made with excellent speed.

Once once again, a significantly understated description.

For the contemporary user, ARB 85 Poster is a heavy face often relegated to heading and screen work. And if you desire to be imaginative, bold details play well with the thin strokes you'll discover interspersed among the heavy lines that are so prevalent in this font.

Many typeface designers have tackled the job of taking Becker's extraordinary achievement from paper to digital, and lots of claim to treat his work with care and self-respect. However the Fontry's Becker fonts remain the most historically precise and feasible treatments available, showing up in two industry-satisfying versions: CAS (Computer-Aided Signmaking) and DTP (Desktop Publishing).
