Al Eliott

Canadian type designer from Toronto 1922-1978, active in the phototype era between 1950 and 1985, who made these typefaces:

  • The formal script typeface BalladeerBalladeer (2009), by SoftMaker as Ballantines Serial (2010), by Elsner and Flake as Ballantines Script (1974---this date puzzles me...), by Ralph M. Unger as Carla Pro (2013), by Castcraft as OPTI Dianna Script Agency, and by Dan X. Solo as Dianna.
  • The psychedelic Charade. Charade was digitized by URW++ as Charade (2009).
  • The proprietary Post Office Cartier (late 1970s). Based on Carl Dair's Cartier.

The Baskerville Canada word mark in Canada's logo was lettered by Al Eliott.
