Information:

‘SPARTAN BLACK and ITALIC bring in a bolder weight the same utility and advantages that will be found in ATF Spartan Medium, Spartan Medium Italic and other ATF Spartans still to come; for example: they match the smaller sizes of Linotype’s Spartan Black, extend the same design characteristics into the larger sizes to assure harmony between hand-set display and machine-set body copy they are cast to American line, a real time saver in the interchanging of weights and sizes they are closely, carefully fitted in the interest of effective spacing they are available in a complete size range, accompanied a by a variety of useful auxiliaries. These features assure the Spartans frequent use. Because they are foundry cast by ATF they will stand up under this use, prove themselves doubly profitable.’
