This 1934 ATF version of Othello was designed by Morris Fuller Benton based on Gustave F. Schroeder’s late 1800s type of the same name for the Central Type Foundry. The corners are more rounded and the shapes generally more simplified than the original.
Not to be confused with the Monotype’s digital typeface of the same name.
