Baker originally made Signet for Headliners International in the s, where he worked full time. In he was approached by VGC and told that they would pay him royalties as well if he made the same typeface for them.
Royalties were a relatively new thing back then - Tommy Thompson was the very first person to ever earn royalties in type in for his Thompson Quill script for Photo Lettering Inc , and he wasn't a type designer per se, he was a calligrapher. Lured by the idea of royalties coming his way from two different directions for the same face, Baker did a Signet for VGC. When Bob Evans, owner of Headliners, found out, he threatened to sue VGC for trademark infringement copyright for typefaces was unheard of at the time - every major photo type house had "similar" fonts, and whenever someone got exclusives made by outside designers under a royalty program, it was only a matter of weeks before they were knocked off and changed slightly by other type houses, big and small.
So in order to avoid a trademark infringement lawsuit, VGC called their typeface Baker Signet, instead of just Signet, and went further by asking Arthur Baker to make a lighter version and a condensed version. The lighter version was called Baker Argentina, the condensed version was called Baker Danmark.
The "Number One" prefix was added to both so that when the inevitable knockoffs happened, type buyers would know which type was made first. It was a massive family of a lot of fonts, rendered very ugly by camera stretching and slanting.

Nowacki and Piotr Strzelczyk. Brian J. Bonislawsky [Astigmatic One Eye]. Bruce Rogers. Albert Bruce Rogers was a celebrated American type and book designer b. A graduate from Purdue in , he worked in book design. It was not until that he cut his first typeface, Montaigne, a Venetian style typeface named for the first book it appeared in, a limited edition of The Essays of Montaigne. In , Rogers moved to New York City where he worked both as an independent designer and as house designer for the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
Like Montaigne, it was based on the Venetian typefaces of Nicolas Jenson. Wikipedia: Rogers considered this typeface to be a substantial improvement on his early Montaigne, both because his design had matured and because, on the advice of Frederic Goudy, he had employed Robert Wiebking as the punch-cutter, and Rogers used Centaur extensively for the rest of his career.
Wikipedia: As he did not feel capable of designing the sort of chancery typeface that he thought appropriate, Rogers chose to pair Centaur with Frederic Warde's Arrighi, a pairing retained to this day. His typefaces: Montaigne , privately cast. Punches cut by John Cumming. It was derived from one page printed in the noted type of Nicolas Jenson, and made in one size only, approximately point, with punches cut by John Cumming of Worcester. Compare Jenson, Cloister, Centaur, Eusebius. Centaur original Development continued until Centaur is a modern version of Nicolas Jenson's Venetian typeface Centaur.

Some critics have called it the best recutting of the Jenson letter. Arrighi q. Discussion of Centaur by Don Hosek. About Centaur Monotype , and its digital version, Dean Allen writes: Like Bembo, released for the Monotype machine the same year, Centaur was an exceptionally beautiful and eminently readable revival of Renaissance type.
Unfortunately, the producers of the digital version made a common mistake: the shapes are based on the most basic starting point of Bruce Rogers designs. These designs were intended for metal type that would press into paper, the ink spreading as it absorbed into the fibre. The resulting printed shapes had a good deal more visual force than the original designs. The process was total: design anticipating application. This version of Centaur suffers from the perfection of the process of digital design and offset printing: the original shape is printed coldly intact, and thus its very difficult to set a well-made page in Centaur.
The blurb: The history of the Centaur type, likely the most important American typefeace ever designed, has been recounted untold times in very general terms, following the official version of events, purported by its designer in several publications. Yet, as the new research by Jerry Kelly and Misha Beletsky shows, there is a number of gray areas to the story. The new data, culled from archival documents, some unpublished, as well as from a variety of published sources presents this important design and its history in a new light.

Edward Philip Prince. English punchcutter active from to , associated with seemingly the whole of the blossoming private press movement in England and America, b. For the Doves Press he cut the revivals of Jenson's type that stimulated an interest in 15th century printing in the wider printing industry. This Doves type was later thrown into the River Thames by an upset Cobden-Sanderson, over a protracted argument about its authorship. Prince's major design failure is worth noting. The roman design was not a problem, for Prince had cut similar designs for the Kelmscott and Doves presses.
The italic presented a new challenge though. Based on a type used in a work of Tagliente, this was the first attempt to recut a chancery italic. Despite help from Edward Johnston, Prince was seemingly unable to do interpret the design, and demanded finished drawings from Johnston, which the Englishman - in accordance with his views on the nature of craftsmanship - was not inclined to provide. It is instructive to note a confession Prince made to Kessler, characterizing himself as "a craftsman carrying out other men's designs".

The marriage did not last; they separated in , and quickly divorced, though the break-up was an amicable one. He had his name changed several times, first his last name to Warde, and then his first name first to Frederique and then to Frederic.

Wiki page. Freeman Jerry Craw. Or Freeman Godfrey Craw. He died in Excerpts of his obituary in the Star Ledger: Graphic artist and designer renowned internationally as innovator in visual identity field, created many recognizable typefaces that bear his name. Craw had lived in Tinton Falls since Prior to that, he had been a long-time resident of Short Hills, N.
Known to family and friends as Jerry, he forged a highly distinguished and decorated career in graphic art, calligraphy, and topography. Born and raised in East Orange, N. In , he joined Tri-Arts Press Inc. In that capacity, he had complete graphic control over the most interesting and impressive printing produced in the U. During this time, he created unique visual identity programs for numerous prestigious business and institutional clients, including CBS and IBM. In , he left Tri-Arts to establish his own company, Freeman Craw Design as a specialist in design-for-printing.
As an independent design consultant and art director, Jerry maintained a full-time office of designers and artists to better serve the complete needs of his clientele. He provided a broad range of graphic and production services, including photography, typography, illustration, composition, platemaking and printing.
He also served as manager of production and graphics for Rockefeller University Press at that time. Jerry was considered one of the best graphic artists in the world, and his body of work has been described by colleagues and industry insiders as "legendary. Jerry's calligraphic works were held in such high regard that permanent collections were established at the of the Museum of Modern Art and the Cooper-Hewitt Museum of New York, a division of the Smithsonian Institution, as well as the Whitney Museum of American Art.
Additionally, in , he was a founding member of the Type Directors Club, which today is still the leading international organization devoted to excellence in topography. He was also the recipient of numerous national and international awards and citations for excellence in graphic design. His obituary contains this paragraph about Jerry's great personality: Jerry was warmhearted, gregarious, and passionate about his art. His intelligence and gentle nature always shined through. He was good humored, loved to be around people, and always seemed to get along with everyone, even strangers.
He considered himself a "hopeless Francophile," and was heavily influenced by School of Paris painters like Degas, Braque, Picasso, and particularly Modigliani. Having traveled extensively throughout France, he developed a keen appreciation of French culture, French architecture and, of course, French wine. He even taught himself the language and became fluent in it.
Jerry loved a good bottle of Chateauneuf du Pape, but would love sharing it with family and friends even more. His warmth, humor, and creativity will be sorely missed by all who knew and loved him. Craw has commented that as a designer of type he faced different problems than as a designer with type. Perhaps this and the alleged rush production resulted in unfortunate compromise, as some sizes are small for the body, with excess shoulder.

Nearing death, he was visited by the hermit St. Antony, who buried him in a cloak from St. Two lions were said to have helped dig Paul's grave, and they stand with him in church art.
Anthony of Egypt c.
From the age of about 20 until his death at , he lived as a hermit in remote hilltop and desert locations. What is known about him comes from a life written by St. Athanasius of Alexandria. He cultivated a garden, wove rush mats, and fought many temptations and demons.
He is the patron of basket and brush makers, butchers and gravediggers. Sulpice died c. When he became bishop of Bourges in Aquitaine in , he defended the rights of his people against the tyrannical Merovingian kings. Known for his austerity and holiness, Sulpice was beloved in Bourges for his generosity and was said to have converted everyone there to Christianity through his personal witness.
He attended the Council of Clichy in , and resigned as bishop of Bourges late in life to serve the poor. The enormous Church of Saint-Sulpice, near the Luxembourg gardens in Paris, and a famous French seminary are named for this holy bishop. When her father suggested a dispensation for her to marry the king of Bohemia, Margaret threatened to cut off her nose and lips.

Fabian died FEAST January 20 A Roman layman not thought to be under consideration, Fabian was elected pope in after a dove landed on his head during the conclave. He divided Rome into seven ecclesiastical districts, with a deacon in charge of each, and brought the bodies of the martyrs Sts. Pontian and Hippolytus from Sardinia to Rome for reburial. He was among the first martyrs in the persecution of Emperor Decius, who ruled Cyprian called Fabian "an incomparable man, the glory of whose death corresponded with holiness of his life. Sebastian died c. Though a Christian, he joined the imperial army at Rome about He made converts of officials and jailers, effected cures and urged Christian prisoners to stay strong in their faith.
He was named captain of the praetorian guards, but the emperor, upon finding out that he was a Christian, ordered his execution. Shot with arrows and left for dead, Sebastian survived and was nursed back to life. Later, he denounced the emperor for his cruelty to Christians, and the emperor had him beaten to death.
