Hyperion - Benedictine revival

DizajnDesign's picture

One of the exercise during my type[media MA we are working on the revivals of old typefaces.
I choose book with "funny" typeface, where the letters have "very strange countrespaces".
Now, thanks to typohile forum ( http://typophile.com/node/50478 ), I know it´s Benedictine, typeface designed by Joseph E. Hill, under direction of Edward E. Barlett for Mergenthaler Linotype.

I am showing here my work in progress...

Looks very nice. If you are going to use any alternates you might want to think about using the rounded quality of the l.c. h in the m,n, and u.

Might liven things up a bit : ) Just a thought.
