What is the ITC Century Handtooled® font?
The Century typeface family has a long history beginning in 1894 when Theodore Low DeVinne, publisher of Century Magazine, commissioned Linn Boyd Benton to design a new typeface specifically for the magazine. Since then, the Century family has undergone numerous reincarnations, including the standard Century Schoolbook, which is still used for elementary school books. Century typefaces are renowned for their readability. In 1975, International Typeface Corporation commissioned Tony Stan to redraw and extend the Century family; Stan tightened the letterspacing and increased the x-height. ITC Century Handtooled is a variant, designed by Ed Benguiat, using ITC Century Bold as the base for the design. The resulting display face can complement and enhance a large variety of text faces. ITC Century Handtooled is suitable for headlines in advertising, magazines and books, as well as simple job work.
