Unique Fonts in our Print Shop: Shadow

One of the most special fonts that we have in our print store display is “Shadow.” The font was designed by Morris Fuller Benton in 1934 for the American Type Founders. Benton is credited as America’s a lot of prolific designer of metal kind for letterpress printing. He looked after a group that finished 221 typefaces while he benefited the American Type Founders.

In this video clip, Howard talks about the Shadow font style, just how it absolutely looks strange when considering the face of the types, and also prints an instance.
