ABOUT







George Battee

Engraving department head at Baltimore Type, who designed Athena and Trylon Shaded.

Mac McGrew: Athena is a very narrow, light roman typeface with unusually tapered vertical strokes, designed and cut by George Battee of Baltimore Type about 1955. It is a distinctive novelty, useful for a limited amount of delicate display.

Athena was digitally revived and expanded by Miranda Roth as LTC Athena (2013, P22/Lanston).
