The rather wide, caps-only Monotype Engravers family imitates scripts that evolved from copperplate and steel plate engravers hands of the nineteenth century, which were a quite expressive medium! Monotype Engravers' letters show a strong contrast between thick and thin strokes and have sharply cut serifs.In 1899, Robert Wiebking (who worked for a number of foundries in his time) designed an all-caps typeface named "Engravers Roman." Shortly thereafter, American Type Founders, Inc. (ATF) released another successful ancestor of this design in 1902, "Engravers Bold," designed by Morris Fuller Benton. Engravers Bold was also released by the Barnhart Brothes & Spinder foundry.Also made available by Lanston Monotype at the beginning of the twentieth century, the Engravers faces soon became a popular choice for letter heads, advertising and stationery.
