I Love Type Series (vol.6): I Love Franklin Gothic
Edited and designed by TwoPoints.net

Named in honour of American printer, Benjamin Franklin, Franklin Gothic had been a popular sans serif typeface for headlines and display settings. Designed by Morris Fuller Benton (1872-1948) and released by American Type Founders in the early 1900s, Franklin Gothic originated as two designs – for display and text – and later grew to a full range of alphabets, including condensed, Wide and Book, over the century, widely adopted as corporate typeface and for logo design even today.

With its focus on Franklin Gothic and its modern variations in graphic design, I Love Franklin Gothic reintroduces the type in the current with a foreword by Allan Haley, former vice president of ITC and currently the director of Words and Letters at Monotype Imaging. Masterly produced by viction:ary and TwoPoints.Net, I Love Type series also includes I Love Futura (Vol. 1), I Love Avant Garde (Vol. 2), I Love Bodoni (Vol. 3), I Love DIN (Vol. 4) and I Love Gill Sans (Vol. 5).
