Rogers is considered one of the most important book designers and typographers of the 20th century. In addition to his early work for the Riverside Press (1900-1911), the Odyssey Edition (1932) and the Oxford Lectern Bible of 1935 are particularly well known. In 1914 Rogers designed the Centaur Antiqua typeface which was widely used in the Monotype version from 1929. (Video)
