Beginning in January, 1932, Alf R. Becker of St. Louis Missouri, at the request of then-editor E. Thomas Kelly, supplied SIGNS of the Times magazine's new Art and Design section with an alphabet a month, a project initially predicted to last only two years. Misjudging the popularity of the series, it instead ran for 27 years, ending finally two months before Becker's death in 1959, for a grand total of 320 alphabets, a nearly perfect, uninterrupted run. In late 1941, just ten years after the first alphabet was published, 100 of those alphabets were compiled and published in book form under the title, 100 Alphabets, by Alf R. Becker.
And so, as published in August, 1937, The Fontry presents a limited version of Becker's 187th alphabet, Moderne Caps.
ARB-187 Modern Caps font contains 99 defined characters and 81 unique glyphs. The font contains characters from the following unicode character ranges: Basic Latin (84), Latin-1 Supplement (2), Latin Extended-A (3), Spacing Modifier Letters (3), General Punctuation (6).
