Apple Fonts

Alternate URL. The history of all fonts used and produced by Apple. A brief summary of this:

  • Corporate fonts and brand identity
    • Motter Tektura (designed by Othmar Motter of Voralberger Graphic in 1975): before the first Macintosh, Apple used Motter Tektura to accompany the Apple logo. "According to the logo designer, Rob Janoff, the typeface was selected for its playful qualities and techno look, in line with Apple's mission statement of making high-technology accessible to anyone."
    • Apple Garamond, the new corporate font used when the Macintosh was introduced in 1984. ITC Garamond (Tony Stan, 1977) was condensed to 80% of its normal width by Bitstream, who also adjusted and hinted it. Apple Garamond was used in most of Apple's marketing. The Wikipedia comment: "Many typographers consider ITC Garamond in general, and Apple Garamond in particular, to be poorly designed typefaces. A common viewpoint is that the algorithmic scaling distorted the typeface."
    • Myriad Pro: starting in 2002, Apple began using Myriad Pro Semibold (a sans serif face) in its marketing, gradually replacing Apple Garamond. MyriadPro and MyriadApple can be downloaded here.
    • Gill Sans Regular: used in the marketing of the Newton PDA.
  • Fonts of the original Macintosh All but one of these bitmap fonts were due to Susan Kare. The fonts were originally named after stops along the Paoli, Pennsylvania commuter train line: Overbrook, Merion, Ardmore, and Rosemont. Later, under pressure from Steve Jobs, names of world cities were chosen. A number of different variants of each font were algorithmically generated on-the-fly from the standard fonts. Bold, italic, outlined, underlined and shadowed variations were the most common.
    • Cairo: a bitmap dingbat font, most famous for the dogcow at the 'z' character position.
    • Chicago (sans-serif): the default Macintosh system font in System 17.6.
    • Geneva (sans-serif): designed for small point sizes and prevalent in all versions of the Mac user interface.
    • London (blackletter): an Old English-style font.
    • Los Angeles (script): a thin font that emulated handwriting.
    • Monaco (sans-serif, monospaced): a fixed-width font well-suited for 912 pt use.
    • New York (serif): a Times Roman-inspired font.
    • San Francisco: a ransom note face.
    • Venice (script): a calligraphic font designed by Bill Atkinson.
  • Fonts in Mac OS X
    • Lucida Grande: the primary system font in Mac OS X (all versions). Lucida Grande looks like Lucida Sans, but has more glyphs. It covers Roman, Cyrillic, Hebrew, Arabic, Thai and Greek. Many of its 2800+ glyphs were added by Michael Everson to the original collection.
    • Mac OS X ships with a number of high-quality typefaces, for a number of different scripts, licensed from several sources.
    • LastResort (designed by Michael Everson of Evertype): used by the system to display reference glyphs in the event that real glyphs needed to display a given character are not found in any other available font. Wikipedia states: "The glyphs are square with rounded corners with a bold outline. In the left and right sides of the outline, the Unicode range that the character belongs to is given using hexadecimal digits. Top and bottom are used for one or two descriptions of the Unicode block name. A symbol representative of the block is centered inside the square. By Everson's design, the typeface used for the text cut-outs in the outline is Chicago, otherwise not included with Mac OS X. The LastResort font has been part of Mac OS since version 8.5, but the limited success of ATSUI on the classic Mac OS means that only users of Mac OS X are regularly exposed to it."
    • Apple Symbols: a dingbat font that complements the symbols from Lucida Grande, inttroduced first in Mac OS X 10.3 ("Panther").
    • Zapfino (a calligraphic typeface designed by and named after renowned typeface designer Hermann Zapf for Linotype, based on an example he first drew in 1944): Zapfino utilizes the most advanced typographic features of the truetype format, and is partially included in OS X as a technology demo for ligatures and character substitutions.
    • Mac OS X Snow Leopard comes with four new fonts in 2009: Chalkduster (emulating chalk on a blackboard), Menlo (a monospaced family based on Bitstream's Vera Sans Mono that replaces Monaco for applications such as Terminal and code editors; see also Deja Vu Sans Serif Mono), Heiti SC and TC and Hiragino Sans GB.
  • Fonts used in other devices
    • Espy Sans: designed in 1993 by Apple's Human Interface Group designed the typeface Espy Sans specifically for on-screen use. It was first used for the Newton OS GUI and later integrated into Apple's eWorld online service.
    • eWorld Tight: a bitmap font used for headlines in Apple's eWorld. The metrics of eWorld Tight were based on Helvetica Ultra Compressed.
    • Chicago (see above): bitmap face used in Apple's iPod music player since 2001.

Applied Symbols
[Selwyn Hollis]

Applied Symbols, founded by Selwyn Hollis, specializes in custom fonts and graphics for Mathematica. It created OpenType versions of Knuth's Computer Modern fonts. [Considering that the PostScript versions of these fonts by BlueSky are free, I have a problem with Applied Symbols actually selling them.] Another font sold here is UniMath: "This OpenType font contains over a thousand glyphs, including math-italic Roman and Greek alphabets, upper-case blackboard bold, calligraphic, and Euler script, and hundreds of technical and mathematical symbols." In an earlier web life (as Faux Tex Fonts), Selwyn was selling a Mac package with these truetype fonts: Symbolic, MathMode, and KahoeTech. [Google] [MyFonts] [More]  ⦿

BA Graphics
[Robert Alonso]

Bob Alonso (b. Bronx, NY, 1946, d.2007), the founder of BA Graphics in 1994, is an American typographer who designed Damage Control (1993, grunge), Mango Gothic (1991), Pimento (1998), Shooby (1992), Pink Mouse (1992, psychedelic), Tequila (1992, a bouncy play on Didot), Alex (1996, child's hand), Chicken Soup (1993), PC Gothic (2005), Rust Bucket (1994), ITC Aftershock (1996), ITC Outback (1997), ITC Serengetti (1996), ITC Ziggy (1997), Gusto Black (2003), Vinchenso (2003), Blog (2007, 1890's style display egyptian), Nine One One BA (2007, grunge). He also designed the clean handwriting face Zipty Do, Serendipity (2006), CEO Roman (2007), Paladium Gothic (2007, a sans), Snip Tuck (1994, a headline face), Rancho Grande (1995), Radiance Brush (1997, a casual brush script), and Sahara Bodoni (1996). 33 years of experience at NewYork's Photo Lettering, and specializing to some extentv in calligraphic script faces, but not exclusively so. BA Graphics was located in Chester, NY, and later in Toms River, NJ, and now sells its fonts through MyFonts.

The complete list: ITC Aftershock, Alexandra Script (a formal script), Allure, Alons Antique, Alons Classic, Angular, Animated Gothic, Barnboard, Bedrock, Bodoni Roma (1993), Cabernet Sauvignon (2007, a take on Didot---I can't believe BA Graphics trademarked this name!), Cafe Aroma, California Sans, Calafragalistic (1992), Caslon Manuscript (1992), Champ Ultra (1995, Western billboard font), Chunky Monkey, Cookie Dough, Crackers, Crescent, Down Under, Elegante, Elephant Bells, Ellington Manor, Equate (1993), Extreme (chalk writing, 1996), Felicity Script, Flix, Freaky Friday Extreme, French Vanilla, Galactic, Geo (2000), Granny Smith, Gusto Black, Headline Gothic, High Intensity, Island Sans, Italian Didot, Kresson Black, Linear Gothic, Lorraine Script, Mardi Gras, Mega (1993, a fat mini-spurred didone), Milano, Nightmare, ITC Outback, Pecos, Ravenwood, Red Dawg, Relaxed Fit, Richmond Hill, Road Gothic (1996), Robertson, Senegal, ITC Serengetti, Shazam, Sign Gothic Bold Condensed, Slam Dunk, Sleepy Hollow, Swank Gothic, Title Gothic Light, Torino Modern, Triumph Gothic, Vinchenso Regular, Wackado, Yakety Yak (1994), Zany, ITC Ziggy, Zipty Do, Queen of Hearts (1991, script), Steel Magnolias (1995, blackletter family), Steeplechase (1992, wild West saloon font), Waimea (1992, poster font), Black Rising (2006, a black military style face), Summer Nights (1993, script), Sugar Shack (1995, curly script), Beaches and Cream (1996, a sans turned into a connected script), Jr High (1994, sports lettering).

Alonso Flair with its flared pants (2008) and Squat (2011, a stunted black wood style face) were started by Alonso, but finished after his death by John Bomparte, who wrote this obituary: Throughout his career at the legendary Photo-Lettering, Inc. (one that spanned four decades), Bob created original typefaces and tailored type by modifying, revising and filling out families, fashioning pieces of type for hand-lettered jobs, as well as being involved with the updating of a number of well-known logotypes. Bob was blessed with natural teaching abilities; and those in social and professional circles who had the good fortune to know him considered him not just a type designer but a mentor and a friend. As one such person close to him put it, he was a "graphic technician... back when computers were not even in site for graphic arts, he would take on any intricate&complex graphic project that others would shy away from and come up with a solution that achieved a masterpiece. I'll always remember someone saying 'this can't be done' and Bob saying let me see it and a short time later, there it was --done&perfect. I would like to think that attitude rubbed off on me. Along with this gift for teaching and explaining the complex, Bob exhibited a level of professionalism that was unsurpassed. A number of years ago when the need came to make the transition from the traditional to digital way of creating fonts, he rose to the challenge admirably. Towards the last few years of Photo-Lettering, Bob played a vital role in the conversion to digital, of many of the typefaces within the collection, notably those fonts that carry the prefix PL. More recently, Bob Alonso released several fonts through ITC, Adobe and his independent foundry, BA Graphics. Bob was on the cutting edge of his best work, and in the circumstance of his untimely passing, left a measure of unfinished designs. However, the spirit of his typographic talents and his fine sense of humor lives on through the many much-loved, and popular fonts he has left us: fonts such as Cookie Dough, Equate, Elephant Bells and Pink Mouse, to name a few.

The final font listing at MyFonts: ITC Aftershock, Alex, Alexandra Script, Allure, Alons Antique, Alons Classic, Alonso Flair, Angular, Animated Gothic, Bad Boy, Barnboard, Bedrock, Bodoni Roma, Brawn, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cafe Aroma, Calafragalistic, California Sans, Cedar Key, CEO Roman, Champ Ultra, Chardonnay, Chicken Feet, Chicken Soup, Chunky Monkey, Clearmont, Coffee Black, Cookie Dough, Crescent, Deco Inline, Deep Rising (2006, constructivist), Down Under, Elegante, Elephant Bells, Ellington Manor, Equate, Extreme, Fashion Didot, Felicity Script, Flix, Fraggle, Freaky Friday Extreme, French Vanilla, Galactic, Geo, Grandeur, Granny Smith, Gusto Black, Hatari, Headline Gothic, High Intensity, Island Sans, Italian Didot, Jr High, Ka Boink, Ker Pow, Key West, Klingon, Kresson Black, Linear Gothic, Lorraine Script, Malibu Heights, Manchester, Mardi Gras, Mega, Metro Gothic, Milano (2004, a didone face), Mission Hills, National Gothic, Nightmare, Oh Sweet Pea, ITC Out of the Fridge, ITC Outback, Paladium Gothic, PC Gothic, Pecos, Pink Mouse, Queen Of Hearts, Radiance Brush, Rancho Grande, Range Gothic, Ravenwood, Relaxed Fit, Road Gothic, Robertson, Rust Bucket, S&L Gothic, Sahara Bodoni, Senegal, Serendipity, ITC Serengetti, Shadow Gothic, Shangrala, Shazam, Shore Bodoni, Sign Gothic Bold Condensed, Slam Dunk, Sleepy Hollow, Sleezy, Snaggle, Snip Tuck, South Beach, Spice, Steel Magnolias, Steeplechase, Summer Nights, Swank Gothic, Tequila, Thats Amore, Title Gothic Light, Triple Condensed Gothic, Triumph Gothic, Vinchenso Regular, Wackado, Waimea, Wall Street Gothic, Wonka (1996, named after Willy Wonka), Yakety Yak, Zany, ITC Ziggy, Zipty Do.

Blackboard Bold

Blackboard bold symbols, often used by mathematicans, are double struck symbols. Wikipedia states this about its history: In some texts these symbols are simply shown in bold type: blackboard bold in fact originated from the attempt to write bold letters on blackboards in a way that clearly differentiated them from non-bold letters, and then made its way back in print form as a separate style from ordinary bold, possibly starting with the original 1965 edition of Gunning and Rossi's textbook on complex analysis. Some mathematicians, therefore, do not recognize blackboard bold as a separate style from bold: Jean-Pierre Serre, for example, has publicly inveighed against the use of "blackboard bold" anywhere other than on a blackboard, and uses double-struck letters when writing bold on the blackboard, whereas his published works consistently use ordinary bold for the same symbols. Donald Knuth also advises against the use of blackboard bold in print.

I disagree with Knuth on this point. Blackboard Bold provides mathematicians with a nice set of extra symbols, basically doubling the capitals in the Latin alphabet. Furthermore, the blackboard bold R, C, N, Q, and Z are now deeply rooted in the mathematical community, denoting the real numbers, the complex numbers, the natural numbers, the rational numbers and the integers, respectively.

Blackboard Bold

For blackboard bold (or "doublestroke") mathematical symbols in TEX, you have six options:

  • Use a type 1 font, and select from the thousands of great fonts. I personally use GoudyHandtooledBT (Bitstream).
  • Use the metafont doublestroke by Olaf Kummer.
  • Use the metafont bbm by Gilles F. Robert.
  • Use the metafont bbold by Alan Jeffrey.
  • Use the metafont amsyb by the AMS.
  • Make your own metafont or type 1 font.

Carlos Winkow

Carlos Winkow is a version of his original name, Carl Winckow. He designed the brush script typeface Reporter (1938, the Wagner foundry, a brush face with many alternates for the glyphs), Gong (1945, Johannes Wagner, a chalk script face; Jaspert mentions the date 1951), Alcazar (FT Nacional, 1944, an inline 3d titling font), Electra (FT Nacional, an almost avant-garde sans family, which includes the ultra thin Estrecha Fina weight), Iberica (FT Nacional, 1942, an open shaded inclined 3d lineale), Nacional (1941, Nacional: a calligraphic roman in old medieval Spanish style with Clasico Nacional 1 and Clasico Nacional Negro weights; see Madrid RR by Red Rooster for a digital version), Cursiva Rusinal (FT Nacional: this is identical to Reporter except in the alternates). Roller (1997, Pat Hickson, ITF) is based on Iberica.

Comments on some digital versions: Romeo (Font Bureau) takes some cues from Electra and says that it is a spectacular art deco sanserif with an unusually fine condensed series. A standard non-chalk version of Gong was done by J. Wagner in 1967, and was published as Jowa Script (Jowa Schreibschrift), which in turn provided inspiration for Iova Nova (2007, Profonts). Lucia Walter revived Winkow's 1931 text face Elzeviriano Ibarra in 2011. Winkow's Numantina (1940) was revived by Nick Curtis as Numancia NF (2011). Steve Jackaman's Casablanca URW (1997) is based on Electra.

Chalkboard and Comic Sans

Vincent Connare (Microsoft designer of Comic Sans MS) claims that Apple's Chalkboard font created in 2003 and shipped with its Jaguar software, is too close to Comic Sans. I believe this is an outrageous claim. It's like saying that all casual chalkboard-style scripts descend from Comic Sans or attempt to replace it. If Comic Sans had been designed anywhere but at Microsoft, nobody would have known about it. It got a lucky ride. To stake a claim and mark territory because of this is wrong.

Nick Shinn has another (vali) view: This kind of plagiarism is legal in North America, as there is apparently no "point piracy" involved (but you could do a comparison of physical parameters). Technically it may be illegal in Europe. No self-respecting type foundry or designer would put their name to it, but Big Silicon can publish this font without damaging its reputation; Apple has no qualms about doing to Microsoft what Microsoft has done several times to others, most notoriously its copy of Palatino. Also, there is no general outrage, because Comic Sans is a much despised face--so again, there is a double standard. The fact that this is a free (bundled) font may also effect the optics, further lessening the stigma. However, despite Comic Sans and Chalkboard being "infra dig" with professional designers, Chalkboard has never acquired the cachet of Comic Sans, even amongst Mac users. [Google] [More]  ⦿

Dries Wiewauters

Belgian designer who has a bachelors in graphic design from St. Lucas, Gent (Belgium) and ArtEZ Arnhem (The Netherlands), and a Masters in the same area from both places. He lives in Gent and loves mussels (or, at least, he loves to make posters of mussels). Behance link. He list of typefaces:

  • PDU, or Plaque Découpée Universelle (2010). Dries writes: After reading the excellent essay by Eric Kindel: The Plaque Découpée Universelle: a geometric sanserif in 1870s Paris (Typography Papers 7, Reading, 2007), both James Goggin and I got fascinated by the idea of a stencil with which you can draw every letter of the alphabet: uppercase, lowercase, numbers, punctuation. The original stencil was invented in 1876 by Joseph A. David (USA). In order to experience the stencil first hand and because the original is really fragile and very hard to come by, 3 prototypes were laser cut out of 0,5 mm steel. To comply with friends' demand, a small edition of 50 copies was made. To enable smoother drawing these were cut out of 0,2 mm flexible steel.
  • PDP, or Plaque Découpée Personnalisée, is the result of further experimentation with the Plaque Découpée Universelle. These 18 fonts were made as part of Feed the Library, an installation by the Werkplaats Typografie during the 2010 NY Art Book Fair.
  • Norwich (2005, pixel family).
  • Gütz (2006, blackletter).
  • Rietveld Fatface (2007, fat sans titling face).
  • Hafssól (2007, pixel face).
  • Grey Text, Grey Display, Ultra Black (2008-2009). Done for his Masters at St Lucas Academy in Ghent, and The Grey Press. Grey Text is a text face, Grey Display a set of six inline / blackboard bold faces, and Ultra Black a fat brush poster face.
  • Interieur2010 (2010): a type family that started out by modeling a chair.
  • MAD (2009). Multiline type family started from Machine Aided Design typefaces.

Edward Benguiat

Born in New York in 1927, Ed grew up in Brooklyn. He was once a very prominent jazz percussionist playing in several big bands with Stan Kenton and Woody Herman, among others. He has created a large number of typefaces between 1970 and 1995. About his career, he once said: I'm really a musician, a jazz percussionist. One day I went to the musician's union to pay dues and I saw all these old people who were playing bar mitzvahs and Greek weddings. It occurred to me that one day that's going to be me, so I decided to become an illustrator. He designed more than 400 faces for PhotoLettering. He played a critical role in establishing The International Typeface Corporation (or ITC) in the late '60s and early '70s. Founded in 1971 by designers Herb Lubalin, Aaron Burns, and Ed Ronthaler, ITC was formed to market type to the industry. Lubalin and Burns contacted Benguiat, whose first ITC project was working on Souvenir. Ed became a partner with Lubalin in the development of U&lc, ITC's famous magazine, and the creation of new typefaces such as Tiffany, Benguiat, Benguiat Gothic, Korinna, Panache, Modern No. 216, Bookman, Caslon No. 225, Barcelona, Avant Garde Condensed, and many more. With Herb Lubalin, Ed eventually became vice-president of ITC until its sale to Esselte Ltd.

Ed is a popular keynote speaker at major type meetings, including, e.g., at TypeCon 2011, where he entertained the crowd with quotes such as I do not think of type as something that should be readable. It should be beautiful. Screw readable. His typefaces---those from PhotoLettering excepted:

  • ITC Avant Garde Gothic (1971-1977, with Andre Gurtler, Tom Carnase, Christian Mengelt, and Erich Gschwind).
  • ITC Modern No. 216 (text family). The Softmaker versions are called M791 Modern and Montpellier.
  • Modern No. 20, after the Stephenson Blake original from 1905. [Image by Kristen Cleghorn]
  • ITC Barcelona (1981).
  • ITC Bauhaus (1974-1975). ITC Bauhaus was codesigned with Victor Caruso. The Softmaker versions are called R790 Sans and Dessau. The Infinitype ersion is Dessau. The Bitstream version is Geometric 752.
  • ITC Benguiat (1977) and ITC Benguiat Gothic (1977-1979). Comic book style faces called Benjamin and Benjamin Gothic on the SoftMaker MegaFont XXL CD (2002). Softmaker also has fonts called B693 Roman and B691 Sans that are identical.
  • Benguiat Roman (1960s).
  • PL Bernhardt (Photo-Lettering, 1970), modeled after a 1930-1931 design by Lucian Bernhard.
  • ITC Bookman (1975). See B791 Roman on the SoftMaker MegaFont XXL CD (2002).
  • Calendar (1960s).
  • ITC Caslon 224 (1983). In 1960, he added Benguiat Caslon Swash, and in 1970, Caslon 223 followed. See C790 Roman on the SoftMaker MegaFont XXL CD (2002), and Caslon CP (2012, Claude Pelletier).
  • ITC Century Handtooled (1993).
  • ITC Cheltenham Handtooled (1993).
  • ITC Edwardian Script (1994).
  • ITC Garamond Handtooled.
  • ITC Korinna (1974): after a 1904 face called Korinna by Berthold. Michael Brady thinks it is a very very close to the Berthold original.
  • Laurent (1960s).
  • Lubalin Graph (1974, ITC). By Herb Lubalin, Ed Benguiat, Joe Sundwall, and Tony DiSpigna.
  • ITC Panache Book (1987).
  • Scorpio (1960s).
  • ITC Souvenir (1977). Kent Lew: Benguiat revived Benton's Souvenir for ITC in the '70s and that was well-received for a while. On the other hand, look what happened after that. Souvenir in the ATF 1923 catalog looks really nice, IMO. Souvenir in the '70s seems cliché now. Souvenir these days would be downright dorky. Souvenir was done by Benguiat in 1967 at PhotoLettering. Morris Fuller Benton's original model was from 1914. It was described by Simon Loxley as follows: Souvenir is a face that is intractably rooted in style to a particular era, although one a half-century after its creation. It is a quintessential late 1960s and 1970s typeface, informal, with full rounded character shapes and rounded serifs, a laid-back Cheltenham. The Bitstream version of ITC Souvenir was called Sovran.
  • ITC Tiffany (1974), a fashion mag typeface family. Adobe says that it is a blend of Ronaldson, released in 1884 by the MacKellar Smiths&Jordan foundry, and Caxton, released in 1904 by American Type Founders.
  • PL Torino (1960, Photo-Lettering), a blackboard bold didone-inspired typeface.
  • In 2004, House Industries released five faces based on the lettering of Ed Benguiat: Ed Interlock (1400 ligatures---based on Ed's Interlock, Photolettering, 1960s), Ed Roman (animated bounce), Ed Script, Ed Gothic and Bengbats.
  • He did logotypes for many companies, including Esquire, New York Times, Playboy, Reader's Digesn, Sports Illustrated, Look, Estée Lauder, AT&T, A&E, Planet of the Apes, Super Fly.
  • Lesser known Photolettering faces include Benguiat Bounce, Benguiat Boutique, Benguiat Bravado, Benguiat Brush, Benguiat Buffalo (+Ornaments), Benguiat Century, Benguiat Cinema, Benguiat Congressional, Benguiat Cooper Black, Benguiat Cracle, Benguiat Crisp, Benguiat Debbie, Benguiat Montage, Benguiat Roman. Scorpio, Laurent and Charisma, all done in the 1960s, are psychedlic types.

Expert Alphabets
[George Abrams]

George Abrams (b. 1919 or 1920, Brooklyn, d. 2001, Manhasset, NY) is the designer of the gorgeous font families Augereau, Abrams Caslon and Venetian, at Expert Alphabets in Great Neck, NY. Abrams taught lettering and typeface design at the Parsons School of Design, the New School for Social Research and at the Columbia University Teachers College. He had over 50 years of Madison Avenue experience designing ads, logos, typography and lettering for Fortune 500 companies and more. His early typefaces were photo types published by Headliners in New York City. He died on June 7, 2001 at age 81.

About Augereau: This is the only digitized face by George Abrams [in fact, the digitization is due to Charles Nix, for George Abrams]. Its 28 weights include over 2,000 sorts including expert, OsF,&alts. Augereau is named for Antoine Augereau, who was a typographer who had a few claims to fame - one was that he was Claude Garamonds teacher, and two was that he was sentenced to death for heresy in 1544. Heresy for a typographer in 1544 meant that he printed something that the king or the Pope didn't like and died for it.

I would like to thank Poul Steen Larsen for clarifying the history of Abrams' Venetian: The Abrams Venetian was donated to Mr. Poul Kristensen of Herning (in Jutland), then Printer to the Royal Court (which he has ceased to be in 1995). You are right about the font being today locked to Poul Kristensen' old Linotron, from which not even Linotype experts brought in to unlock it, could get it out for conversion into an up-to-date digital font. So the font will disappear from the type arena when Kristensens Linotron one day breaks down. You can trust me, for I was the one who established the contact between George and Mr. Kristensen back in 1986. The font was first used in 1989 in a book by Martin Lowry, British renaissance historian, with the title Venetian Printing. George Abrams' chalk drawings of the entire alphabet in regular and italic were scanned, more precisely vectorised on-screen and downloaded in Denmark by the Kristensens and therefore, in one sense, could be called the first Danish complete font. A sample of the first use of Abrams' Venetian. A second sample from "Venetian Printing". Abrams Venetian was digitized at some point by Jorgen Kristensen for Poul Kristensen Grafisk Virksomhed Printer.

Apostrophe wrote this about Abrams Caslon: This was actually reviewed by Caflish and, if I remember correctly, Mark vonBronkhorst, so there are at least 3 or 4 copies of it out there, other than the Abrams' estate original data. Sumner Stone once said that this is the best Caslon he has ever seen. At least he has seen it; I haven't.

The typefaces by Abrams (Abrams Venetian and Augereau) are preserved in the New York City-based Abrams Legacy Collection (see also here).

In 2006, Font Diner acquired the Filmotype collection and its trademark, Filmotype. Sandler writes: Filmotype initially manufactured a simple manual phototype machine utilizing display typeface designs on 2-inch filmstrips. Additional films were sold to start-up typesetting companies in order to increase their product selection. Font Diner will create new digital versions of the Filmotype collection, recreating it to meet todays graphic design standards. [...] We intend to release the Filmotype library in OpenType format so the original designs can be fully realized with a dynamic feature set including alternate glyph forms and automatic substitutive ligatures.

In 2007, Font Diner started publishing digitizations of the collection: Glenlake (condensed Bank Gothic, by Mark Simonson), MacBeth (script), Alice (casual script), Zanzibar (calligraphic), La Salle (brush writing originally by Ray Baker in the 1950s, named after Chicago's LaSalle Street), Ginger (Mark Simonson; masculine headline face genetically linked to Futura), Austin (paintbrush), Brooklyn (handprinted), Honey (handlettered script), Jessy (handwriting), Modern, Vanity, Filmotype Ford.

In 2010, Stuart Sandler published a book entitled Filmotype by the Letter, in which he details the company's history.

As the runaway vehicle sped up to over 100 mph, all four passengers were killed in a fiery crash in the San Diego River. The loss was unquantifiably devastating. This immensely tragic event led my aunt to testify before congress with damning evidence that would initiate the recall of millions of Toyota vehicles.

Jeff Levine: Art Deco Faces
[Jeff Levine]

Art deco is another style that appeals to Jeff Levine. He has created some beauties:

  • Aircheck (2006, retro CBS font).
  • Airliner JNL (2008, all caps, based on a promotional postcard for Kitty Davis' Airliner - a popular Miami Beach night spot of the 1940s).
  • Art Lover JNL (2007, based on an art deco face from a Dan Solo book).
  • Big Band JNL (2011) is a brash face that is based on a lettering example found in a 1941 Speedball Lettering Pen instruction book.

  • Drawing Tablet JNL (2011).
  • Estella JNL (2008, starry art deco version of Farragut JNL). Jeff writes: Her father named her Estella Dawn, or morning star. She truly shines bright, for as the owner of Stella Roberts Fonts, she has dedicated part of her net profits to helping her siblings pay for their medication; they both suffer from Cystic Fibrosis and diabetes. Calm in spirit, loyal to friends and family, nurturing and caring, Stella has been a friend of Jeff Levine's for years.

MvB Design
[Mark van Bronkhorst]

MvB Design is Mark van Bronkhorst's company in Albany, CA. Also known as Markanna Studios Inc. Fonts distributed by FontHaus and MyFonts.

In the list below, unless explicitly mentioned, Mark van Bronkhorst is the designer: GryphiusMVB (2003), MVB Solano Gothic (2007-2009, six Bank Gothic lookalikes done for the city of Albany, CA), ITC Conduit (1997), MVB Celestia Antiqua One and Two (1993-1996, contains zodiac signs), MVB Greymantle (1993, Kanna Aoki), Magnesium MvB (1998, Adobe), Magnolia MvB (1997), Airedale (1992), BovinePoster or MVB Bovine (1993), DickAndJane (1994), MildewRoman (1994), QuercusRegular (1993), PFAnimals (1993), PFCommerceCommunication (1992), PFFoodDrink (1992), PFHolidaysCelebrations (1992), PFHouseholdItems (1993), PFTransportTravel (1992), QuercusHard (1993), MVB Emmascript (1996, Kanna Aoki), MVB Café Mimi (1996-2003, Kanna Aoki), MVB Pedestria (2002, a sans family by Akemi Aoki), MVB Pedestria Pict (2002, dingbats by Akemi Aoki), MVB Verdigris (2003-2011, a garalde close to Sabon), MVB Fantabular and MVB Fantabular Sans (2002, Akemi Aoki, monospaced, typewriter-style), MVB Grenadine One and Two (2003, sans families by Akemi Aoki), MVB Peccadillo (2002, by Holly Goldsmith and Alan Greene), BossaNovaMVB (Holly Goldsmith, 1997), BatmanForever1 (1994, Maseeh Rafani/Warner Bros and Mark van Bronkhorst), Breakdown (1996), HornyDave (1995, based on illustrations of Georgia Panagiotopoulos), HypnoclipsLogoFont (1997), Ovidius (1993), Subterfuge (1995), ZedGothicMvB (1996), HotsyTotsy, MVB Sirenne Six, MVB Sirenne Text, MVB Sirenne Display (2002, display serif family by by MvB and Alan Greene), Veriris Pro Text (2003-2011).

MVB Sacre Bleu (2007) is an award-winning handwriting face about which Joshua Lurie-Terrell writes: Sacre Bleu is the most flexible and accessible informal script of 2007, and rivals some of the best faces in this vein from the past decade. He compares it with Christian Robertson's Dear Sarah, Dave Farey's Lettres Eclatees, Letterror's Salmiak and Nick Cooke's Olicana, another very successful face.

In 2008, Mark set up Sweet Fonts, where he and Linnea Lundquist designed Sweet Upright Script (2008), and Mark published the quintuple line blackboard board family Sweet Titling No. 22 (2010), Sweet Square (2011---in the style of Bank Gothic), Sweet Sans Pro (2011, a sans family from Hairline to Heavy. He says: The family is based on antique engraver's lettering templates called masterplates. Professional stationers use a pantograph to manually transfer letters from these masterplates to a piece of copper or steel that is then etched to serve as a plate or die. This demanding technique is rare today given that most engravers now use a photographic process to make plates, where just about any font will do. But the lettering styles engravers popularized during the first half of the twentieth century---especially the engraver's sans---are still quite familiar and appealing. It is in the style of Burin Sans and Sackers Gothic. And Embarcadero MVB (2010, a near-grotesque superfamily).

In 2013, MVB published the utilitarian sans family MVB Solitaire.

newtx
[Michael Sharpe]

Michael Sharpe (UCSD) created newtx, a free font package at CTAN: This package, based on txfonts, provides many fixes and enhancements to the txfonts package, splitting it into two separate packages---newtxtext and newtxmath, which may be run independently of one another. It provides scaling, improved metrics, and other options. In particular, newtxmath offers a libertine option which substitutes Linux Libertine (provided with TeXLive and MikTeX) italic and Greek letters for the default Times letters, providing a good match for the Libertine text font, which is heavier than Computer Modern but lighter than Times, and in my experience, looks very sharp and clear on the screen.

Nick Curtis

Nick Curtis (b. Chicago, 1948) lived in Texas from 1952-1997, and lives since 1997 in Gaithersburg, MD and Alexandria, MD. From ca. 1990 onwards, he has been designing fonts, first for free, and then commercially. He had a great reputation as a "revivalist" type designer, with a particular interest in retro fonts and art deco types. In 2003, his site had become too popular and too expensive to maintain, and thus he went commercial as Nick's Fonts. In 2013, he stopped making fonts, and donated his collection of rare books and type material to the University of Virginia. Interview. Free downloads at TypOasis. Complete list of names and other info, maintained by Sander de Voogt. Interview in which we learn about his fondness for Corel Draw as a type design tool.

Near the end of 2012, he posted this comment on his web site: Fifteen years ago, I embarked on a wonderful voyage of discovery, when I created my very first font with Fontographer 3.15. My maiden voyages were, frankly, rather clunky and amateurish, but I have been told that they showed promise. Well, sure enough, thanks to the diligent (and patient) efforts of Ilene Strizver, I polished up my craft enough to sell my humble efforts---first as a sideline business and, since 2006, as my full-time job. In total, I have produced over eleven hundred fonts---almost five hundred of them freeware fonts, which I conservatively estimate have been downloaded and enjoyed by over three million people worldwide. Unfortunately, this past year has brought a series of unanticipated setbacks, culminating in the loss of my wife's beautiful mind and soul to the scourge of alcoholism. In an effort to generate extra income to cover the expenses for her long-term care, I have proposed a number of, I believe, innovative ways to revamp the online font business; unfortunately, those efforts have fallen flat, primarily due to the professional font community's abject fear of crossing the $165 million Elephant in the Room. I even offered a special discount rate of 75% off retail price for full-time students of Typohile Forum. To date, there have been zero takers. Hell: even the webfont kit of one of my own fonts which I purchased from myfonts.com turned out to be an empty folder. Talk about a run of bad luck. Which leaves my with you, dear readers. If you or someone you know has had fun or made a buck from my humble efforts throughout the years, please donate whatever you can---even a lousy dollar would help---to help me out. I would greatly appreciate it.

Since the 1990s, he has been designing fonts, first for free, and then commercially.

His free fonts are listed elsewhere.

On MyFonts, he says this about himself: Nick's Fonts is a modest little foundry dedicated to the preservation of our rich typographic heritage. Most of the foundry's designs are based on authentic historical sources, gleaned from the massive collections of the Library of Congress. If you are looking for a font that captures the essence of the Wild West, the Gay Nineties or the Jazz Age, look here first: if it is not in the catalog, it will be soon.

Blackbarry NF (2011) is a faithful revival of Deutsch Black (1966, Barry Deutsch, VGC), a unicase piano key typeface. Bindlestiff NF (2011), which won the 2011 Devroye Memorial Medal for funniest typeface name, revives Schmallfette Binder Style (1959, Joseph Binder, Stempel AG), a squarish tightly set headline face. Decked Out NF (2011) is a fat inline face modeled on Dektiv in Homage to the Alphabet. Bazoo Tow NF (2011) is a fun fattish headline face that is a faithful reroduction of Basuto (1927, Stanley Baxter for Stephenson Blake). Are You Shaw NF (2011) is an all-caps blackboard bold face inspired by Pygmalion, a face found in Homage to the Aplhabet. Hoodoo U NF (2011) is a roly-poly romp through the alphabet, based on Jürgen Riebling's irrepressible Mr. Big from the 1970s. Big, bold, bubbly and a little brash, it's a natural choice for happy headlines. The handlettered Mikeys Roman NF (2011) has an uppercase based on the work of Mike Stevens, and a lowercase based on the work of Alf Becker. Outgribe NF (2011) is a rough, raw typeface that is based on the lettering in Ben Shahn's iconic poster protesting the execution of Nicolo Sacco and Bartolomeo Vanzetti in 1927.

Rightly So NF (2011) is a squarish face based on Geometric Gothic (1884, Palmer and Rey)---it is hard to imagine that this almost pixelish style was around at that epoch. Kenotaph NF (2011) is a condensed headline slab serif modeled after Stymie Obelisk (1930s, Morris Fuller Benton). Vasari NF (2011) is based on Ancient Gothic (1891, William W. Jackson, Keystone Type Foundry). Moslem (Boston Type Foundry) was revived as Suffiya NF (2011). Looky Cookie NF (2011) has eyes placed on the glyphs.

Paul Alan Grosse

Paul Alan Grosse is a very prolific Gurmukhi type designer (among many other things, often technical things---check out his own computer-generated Sudoku and Kakuro puzzles, for example). He created over 200 free Gurmukhi typefaces:

  • Fonts from 2000: Cut-Out-PG, Jotter-PG, Gas-Plasma-PG (dot matrix), Typewriter-PG, Water-Rocket-PG, Handwritten-PG, MySchoolFont (2001, chalk on blackboard style).
  • Gurmukhi: In 2008, he made the Gurmukhi font families Bulara, Magaz (2008), Karmic Sanj (2007: advertized as a Gurmukhi mirror of Cimic Sans MS), Punjabi Typewriter, Gurmukhi Old Letterpress, Gurvetica A, Gurvetica (48 styles---like Helvetica for Gurmukhi), Dekho (2012), Dekho Naveen (2012), Rupe, Lanma (2007, with decorative tails), Choti (stylized script), Raaj (a handwritten style with tails), and Raajaa.
  • His Dave font family (2009) takes the Gurmukhi range but outputs Devanagari characters instead. This means that a piece of text written in Gurmukhi (using Unicode) can easily be displayed as Devanagari, simply by changing the font. Iragan does the opposite: it converts Devanagari to Gurmukhi.
  • Handwriting faces for Gurmukhi: GHW Adhiapak, GHW Dukandar, GHW Penti Akhari, GHW Purani Primer PDL, GHP Full (based on sign-writing). Purani Primer (2013) is a font based on a cursive design from a 100 year-old primer sent to him by Punjab Digital Library.
  • Uttar (2012) and Tsheg (2012): Gurmukhi fonts in the style of Tibetan. Tsheg also has Latin and makes a great oriental simulation typeface.
  • Gurmukhi fonts made in 2013: DIN 1451 Punjabi, Gubara (a balloon font), Modhera (in the style of Gujarati), Dwarka.

More comedy in Chop Phooey (2008), Astronaut Jones (2008), Lil Rhino PB (2008), Houseguest PB (2008), Spidertoes PB (2009) and Tiny Butler (2008).

Manic Mood PB (2008), Kid Captain PB (2009), Bear Club PB (2009), Hot Streak PB (2009) and Suited Horse PB (2008) have more comic book lettering.

Chop Chop PB (2009) is an oriental brush simulation face.

In 2013, Phil Bracco designed Screwby (offbeat retro style that started out as a digitization of the film typeface Surf by Lettergraphics) and Contraption (an octagonal typeface family that started out as a digitization of a film typeface called Intrigue by Lettergraphics).

Typefaces from 2014: Wonderbear PB (a cartoon typeface based on the title screens and comic books of the Hair Bear Bunch), Sackem PB (Bracco explains: Sackem started as a digitization of a singular film typeface called Benman Jumbo by Lettergraphics. From there, this mechanical typeface was expanded into a giant family of playful widths and obliques: from the condensed Slim style to the original Jumbo style).

Timberwolf Type
[Lars Bergquist]

Lars Bergquist is the Swedish type designer (b. 1936) who runs Timberwolf Type in Sollentuna, just outside Stockholm. Bergquist designed numerous successful text families and display faces, including the free Beryll typeface. Some offerings:

  • Old Style romans: Sarabande (1998; based on Jean Jannon's famous "Garamond" of 1621), Pavane (1998, based on a text face by Rudolf Koch), Philomela (2000, also at PsyOps), Montrachet (2002, Fountain: a garalde family), Monteverdi (Fountain: with Granjon's Plantin Ascendonica italic).
  • Baroque/transitional: Leyden, Leyden News (PsyOps, 2000), Baskerville 1757 and Baskerville Caps (1998; winner of a Bukvaraz award in 2001, available at Type Quarry).
  • New Style Romans: Millennium, Eleonora (1999), Prospero (1998, a didone family), Waldstein (2003, Fountain: a Scotch typeface).
  • Sans faces: Millennium, Millennium Sans, Millennium Linear, New Millennium, New Millennium Sans and New Millennium Linear (2000).
  • Display faces: Diorite (2005, a calligraphic angular family), Corsiva Italica (2003), Paracelsus (2003, Fountain: a modern version of Schwabach), Foliant Blackletter (German 15th C Textur), Zeppelin Bauhaus Gothic, Berserk Scandinavian runes, Escorial (at PsyOps), Paestum (2001, a Greek simulation family), Sekhmet (2000), Praetorian, Pressroom (2003), Proconsular, Palaestra (the latter three are inspired by informal, painted Roman wall writing), Triumphalis Caps (also inspired by Roman imperial inscriptions), Bucintoro (1999, a modern version of the rotunda blackletter), Midnight (2000; a neon light/ blackboard bold family), Karolin Fraktur (at Psy/Ops: Fraktur modeled after the Bible of King Charles XII, printed in Stockholm in 1703), Rococo Titling (2001, ornate titling caps based on work done by Jacques-François Rosart (1714-1777) and Pierre Simon Fournier (1712-1768), and the Renaissance family Ronsard (at PsyOps, 2000).
Some fonts are available at Fountain, Psy/Ops and Type Quarry. Bukvaraz gave him an award for Absolut Type, a classic Renaissance family, so I wonder if that is not the same as Baskerville 1757. Lars says that Absolute Vodka complained, so the type is sold by Psy/Ops as Aalborg (2002). He published Whitenights at Linotype in 2003. FontShop link. Klingspor link. [Google] [MyFonts] [More]  ⦿

The one that appeared in the book, however, is slightly different. Confucious is very similar to the font Bamboo. Grog Caps is similar to Rakowski's Nitemare Caps. His ornamental face Wedding of the Bugs (2009) is based on Tarantella from page 89 of Special Effects and Topical Alphabets: 100 Complete Fonts by Dan X. Solo. [Google] [More]  ⦿
