Centaur 22 on 18pt Roman

Centaur, originally designed by Bruce Rogers and hand-cut in 1915 for casting into case, was redrawn for Monotype and reissued in 1929. It was first used by Rogers for his Oxford Lecturn Bible, described by Stanley Morison as the ‘most monumental impression ever given to a Monotype face’.

Rogers wrote of his time with the Lecturn Bible:
My occasional visits to Oxford for inspection of progress made and discussion of problems still to be met became, to me at least, the most pleasant associations I can recall in all my varied experience of printing houses.’
