  1. Eras

    Eras is a humanist sans-serif typeface designed by Albert Boton and Albert Hollenstein, and released by the International Typeface Corporation in 1976. Eras is licensed by the Linotype type foundry. A distinct and curious feature of Eras is its slight, 3-degree right tilt. Eras follows ITC's formulary of increased x-height, and multiple weights from light to ultra bold, though because all weights are slightly slanted, no italic version of the font is supplied. Eras is further distinct for its open bowls on the characters a, P, R, 6, and 9. The letter W changes shape from a merged 'double V' shape in the lighter variants to the standard W symbol in the bolder variants. The typeface is widely used by Telecom Italia Mobile as a corporate typeface It was also used in the emblem and image of the 1998 FIFA World Cup, in the credits for the movie Caddyshack and in the video game Tekken Tag Tournament. The American Broadcasting Company network used the font in its on-air promotion graphics during the early to mid-1980s. It is widely seen in the humorous e-cards distributed through social networking. Four TrueType weights of this font are included with some editions of Microsoft Word, though not with the Windows OS itself
