Century Expanded and Reservation Wide

Let’s take a look at Morris Fuller Benton’s Century Expanded with Silas Dilworth’s Reservation Wide.
The two together have a warm, unmistakeably American feel. Century’s bright text is complemented by Reservation Wide’s confident lettering-inspired gestures. Reservation Wide was initially designed as part of a branding package for The Food Network, and can be seen in associated broadcast and print applications.

Owing to its popularity, Century’s history is quite fragmented and spans lots of different foundries’ interpretations and reappropriations of the same basic style, so if there’s something you need but don’t see here, it likely exists. The below cut of Century Expanded is one Adobe licensed to Linotype (it’s slightly more complicated than that).

That’s it. Catch Great Pairs here each Wednesday.
