What is the best version of Matthew Carter's Miller?

There's Carter&Cone (I'll assume it's this one!), but there's also Font Bureau, etc.

Or are they all the same?

All I hear about it are good things and I think it's time I start experimenting with it.

Maybe I should be looking at Monticello instead? ;)

Font Bureau sells "Carter & Cone" Miller. I believe FB has augmented the number of sizes/weights of Miller with the work of other designers, but what Carter drew up is available. According to Cherie Cone, Carter & Cone get the same amount of money whether they sell you the font, or FB does.I got my fonts from Matthew Carter only because I wanted some special characters.

Both Miller and Monticello are very good fonts, but you'll probably find more uses for Miller if you can only afford one family.

FWIW

Many thanks, Charles.
