typeworship: Immortal Inscriptions For 310 years, and…

18 Mar

@ Symbol that Nick Benson designed as a house number for a tiny house on a trailer that had no true address. Meaning @home.

Not type but I couldn’t leave this one out could I?


Immortal Inscriptions

For 310 years, and counting, The John Stevens Shop has created timeless stone carvings by hand and eye. Based in Newport, Rhode Island, the shop is the oldest continually running business in the US. 

The present owner and Creative Director, Nick Benson began working at the Shop aged fifteen under his father, John Everett Benson. John Everett Benson began working for his father, John Howard Benson, at the age of fifteen. 

As well as the modestly sized but no less exquisite examples I’ve shown above, John and Nick Benson have between them designed and carved inscriptions for the John F. Kennedy Memorial in Arlington National Cemetery, the Martin Luther King Memorial and the World War II Memorial in Washington D.C.
