New to Typophile? Accounts are free, and easy to set up.
I was emailing Juliet Shen today about what she calls the "Yankee eclecticism" of Morris Fuller Benton and I thought I would open up my questions to the good folk of Typophile. I am interested MFB it because in him I think I see an especially good - maybe textbook example of solid typographic innovation and improvement occurring in a nearly pure typographic context as opposed to chiorographic/scribal/Noordzij-centric context. I am interested to know if you think this formulation or way of thinking is 'right on' or bunk and why you think that. I am also interested to know what your favorite MFB contribution to type might be.
