Constructa

Constructa is a slab serif typeface designed by Elizabeth Cory Holzman, and based upon a highly condensed 1934 display face called Tower designed by Morris Fuller Benton. The original face was released by the American Type Founders (ATF). Constructa is a geometerically designed slab serif face licensed by Font Bureau. Holzman's revival includes a light weight called Constructa Thin and an extra bold called Constructa Black.
