Bruce Rogers

Bruce Rogers (1870–1957) was born and raised in Indiana and graduated from Purdue University in 1890. He achieved world renown as a designer of fine books, particularly with Houghton Mifflin’s Riverside Press Editions. In 1929, perhaps at the pinnacle of his career, Rogers was commissioned to create the Oxford Lectern Bible, published by Oxford University Press in 1935 and thought to be Rogers’s masterpiece. In addition to creating the Centaur typeface, Rogers created the Montaigne typeface.
