About BenchNine

Creator:

License: SIL Open Font License, 1.1

The design of BenchNine is loosely based on the look of the ink spreads and bleeds characteristic of traditional or vernacular woodcut type. The design takes a mash-up of a number of old Stephenson Blake designs and rounds the corners a little. In theory the face should work well for headlines that want to stand out just a little from the crowd.
