This student project centers around a fictional exhibit for Morris Fuller Benton, a man whose contributions to typography and the printing industry changed the course of typographic history. The project includes an invitation to the exhibit, tickets, a poster, a promotional animation, as well as an exhibition book and gift shop item. The diagrams throughout are from an 1885 patent Benton's father received for inventing the pantograph machine. Ornaments are made using some of Benton's typefaces, primarily Broadway and Parisian.
