The ease with which we can choose a typeface today is something we take for granted, but it is possible only because of the tremendous amount of labor of the Bentons.The ease with which we can choose a typeface today from a plethora of options to fit a particular need is something we may take for granted, but it is possible only because of the tremendous amount of labor and ingenuity that camebefore. The story of the lives and work of Linn Boyd Benton and Morris Fuller Benton is an important chapter in the history of type, recalling a time in American history when men quietly worked at developing and improvingmechanical technologies that they thought would continue evolving incrementally into the future.
