When William Addison Dwiggins drew the Electra® typeface for Mergenthaler Linotype in the early 1930s, he looked back to the 15th and 16th centuries for inspiration. His intent, however, was not to make a replica of these earlier designs but rather to create something new that evoked the vigor and vitality of the early 20th century. Dwiggins achieved his objective handsomely. When released, Electra was described as having “energy like metal shaving coming off a lathe.”
