Printing Titles in Shadow Typeface

I’ve liked making the paste paper journals so much, but something was missing….why not print titles for the front?

JOURNALS titlesI have this very cool metal typeface called Shadow, I believe.

I am looking for more info on the origins of this font.

I have learned from my letterpress friends on the Letpress list that this is ATF’s Shadow #589, originally designed by Morris Fuller Benton in 1914. Despite being  nearly 100 years old it is so modern-looking! He designed over 200 typefaces. See more info about Morris Fuller Benton here.
