  • Alghera Pro (1996): hand-printed, based on a handwritten Portuguese wine label design.
  • Alys (1995): Calligraphic.
  • Appleyard (1992): based on an old Monotype design, Prumyslava.

  • Bellini (1992): a garalde typeface based on Progreso (1923, Richard Gans Foundry). See Veer, where the font is sold as "Bellini". Linotype sells Greco (DsgnHaus, 1996) which according to some typophiles really is Progreso.
