ABOUT







Thomas Cottrell

British typefounder who introduced the sloped scripts in the copperplate tradition of the Italian hand writing in 1774 [these were later developed in France, where they became known as "anglaise" typefaces]. This page states: In 1794 Robert Thorne purchased the foundry of Thomas Cottrell, a former employee of the original William Caslon, which had been founded in 1757 when Cottrell and Joseph Jackson were fired in a wage dispute. By 1798 Thorne had replaced all of Cottrell's types with his own designs and in 1801 was the first type founder to begin showing the fat typeface types.
