Linn Boyd Benton

Late nineteenth century inventor of the pantographic punchcutting machine, patented in 1885, which altered the way in which letters were designed. With this device, for the first time, a single set of drawings could be traced to cut matrices at a wide range of sizes, without the skills of the punchcutter. Pure type design, as a profession of pen and paper, had begun; and with it scalable type, with its economically tempting compromise of using a single master design for all sizes, had arrived. The compromise has persisted through the phototype era to the present day, with a mere handful of digital typefaces available at more than one design size, despite Donald Knuth and the clever people at Adobe, Apple, Altsys and URW offering high-tech ways to overcome it.
