Type-specimen Zine on the history and anatomy of the type face Franklin Gothic printed with a limited run series of 5 Ben Franklin Gothic illustrations.
Franklin Gothic itself is an extra-bold sans-serif type. It draws upon earlier, nineteenth century models, from many of the twenty-three foundries consolidated into American Type Founders in 1892. It was named in honor of a prolific American printer, Benjamin Franklin. The faces were issued over a period of ten years, all of which were designed by Morris Benton and issued by A.T.F.
