Ben. Franklin types were originated by Keystone Type Foundry in 1899 (regular and Open), with Condensed added in 1904. The Auxiliaries (italic logotypes for ‘Dr.’, ‘To’, ‘The’, ‘the’ and ‘of’ and ornaments) were sold separately. [McGrew 1993] Shown with alternates for ‘acs’.
Digitized by Walter Kafton-Minkel as Benjamin Franklin (1991), based on a showing in Rob Roy Kelly’s Wood Type Alphabets. Extended by Dieter Steffmann (2000). Also available from Intellecta Design (2007, used for the sample).
