Designed by Morris Fuller Benton 1913-15, this Oldstyle family was digitized by Jim Rimmer in the early 2000's. It is a roman face closely styled to that of Nicholas Jensen's with a companion italic in the style of Aldus Manutius. Benton considered Cloister the ideal typeface and it does indeed lend itself to many uses. The digital versions were redrawn by Jim Rimmer.
New Cursive versions added in mid 2006.
This family is available at a discount in the Lanston Collection
