Default Neue Haas Unica complete family $99

Fonts.com is currently offering the Neue Haas Unica complete family pack, 18 fonts, OpenType Pro, for $99.

The Haas foundry developed Unica in the 1970s as a phototype successor to both Univers and Helvetica and named it after both. When digital type succeeded phototype, Unica disappeared from the market.

This is a new version, redrawn by Toshi Omagari, to take advantage of features possible in digital type that weren't available in phototype. Omagari mentions that the Linotype photo system had relatively coarse measurements, so that some characters in the digital version can be drawn better than in the photo version, in addition to the numerous OpenType features. Omagari also found that the original design team envisioned more weights than were ever issued, and accordingly drew five additional weights.
