Chuck Mountain

Designer of free revival types:

  • The fat typeface Chistoso (2019). He writes: Chistoso (Spanish for amusing) is my digital revival (completely redrawn) of Majestic by Julius E. F. Gipkens (1883-1968). Its original metal type version was found in Hauptprobe in gedrängter Form der bauerschen Giesserei Frankfurt am Main. Majestic (1914) is in the tradition of Lucian Bernhard's typefaces, and Mountain's digital revival is the only one I know of to date.
  • Quentell CF (2019). He writes: Quentell is my revival---completely redrawn---of Quentell, designed by William P. Quentell in 1895 for the American Type Founders Co. The original Quentell became the basis of Taylor Gothic (1897). Taylor Gothic was morphed in Globe Gothic by Morris Fuller Benton (1905) for the ATF. A cursory perusal will easily reveal their similarities.
  • Cotrell CF (2019). Cotrell is a revival of Matthews, as seen in Inland Type Foundry's specimen book from 1902. He suppressed Cotrell's swashes and redeesigned the lower case f and g.
  • Zuecos CF (2019). A Western / Italian typeface based on an Italian in Specimen of Leavenworth's Patent Wood Type Manufactured by J.M. Debow (Allentown, New Jersey, n.d., but probably 1840s).
  • Auber CF (2019). A revival and extension of Bohemian, a metal type that can be seen in Printing Machinery and Material (Miller & Richard, 1902).
  • Dukas CF (2019). A revival, completely redrawn, of Studley, a metal typeface in Specimen Book and Catalog (Inland Type Foundry, St. Louis, 1902).
  • Massenet (2020). A revival of Old Style Grotesque Condensed as shown in Specimens of Printing Type (Miller & Richard, Edinburgh, c. 1920).
  • Chausson CF (2020). A revival, completely redrawn, of Othello (shown in Popular Designs for Artistic Printers (Central Type Foundry, St. Louis, 1892), which in turrn seems to be based on an earlier wood type design.
  • Murden CF (2020). Murden CF is a revival of Corbitt (Nicholas J. Werner in 1900 for Inland).
  • Pettingill CF (2020). A revival of the art nouveau typeface Arlington Old Style, as seen in Pettingill Type Book (Pettingill & Co., 1901).
  • Bruntsfield CF (2020), a revival of Bruntsfield, a metal typeface seen in Specimens of Printing Type (Miller & Richard, Edinburgh, (c. 1900)).
