Benguiat is a serif typeface designed by Ed Benguiat in 1977 and published by the International Typeface Corporation (ITC) in 1978. It is also known as ITC Benguiat, Revival 832, and BG. The typeface saw a high level of popularity in the 1980s among American horror novels. It was employed on the cover art of for several Stephen King novels which led to many imitators using it as well. I'm very pleased that the typeface has seen a sort of mini revival with its use in the TV show Stranger Things.

I first saw Benguiat because it was included with my copy of CorelDRAW 7. I really liked the look of the typeface and, back in 2000, I used it to design the logo of the company where I work. I have since used it in various graphic projects.
