What's your favourite contemporary modern face?
Recently, Hoefler & Co. released Surveyor.
The style known as Scotch Roman is considered as a modern face.
But if you look closely at the design of a Scotch Roman, it appears it has the bracketed serifs of the transitional faces.
Modern faces in the Vox-AtypI definition are called Didones meaning Didot and Bodoni. These two types have hairline serifs.
Punchcutter Richard Austin who previously worked for John Bell and gave him transitional types was the creator of Scotch Roman.
I observed some specimen of Scotch Roman that have the high contrast of the Didones.
