Addendum to Thoughts on Letterform Nomenclature

Ed Benguiat just let me know that his terminology chart is online at There is a complete scan of Life with Letters as They Turned Photogenic by Edward Rondthaler (New York: Photo-Lettering, Inc., 1981). If you scroll to p. 183 you can find Ed’s chart. It is rotated, much reduced and lacking the subtle color of the original poster, but it is still legible—and thus functional. Thanks, Ed.
