ABOUT







Central Type Foundry

Foundry from St. Louis, est. 1872. It became "Central Division of ATF" in 1893. Discussion of its types by McGrew. Digitizations:

  • Spiral was the basis of the curly revival Hasta La Pasta (2005, Nick Curtis).
  • Raphael (1885) was digitized at Linotype / Monotype. It is an art nouveau display typeface with lots of swashy flair. Check the Adobe version (1974-1995).
  • Monument is a Solotype revival of a 1893 typeface by the Boston Type Foundry (which was also cast at the Central Type Foundry).
  • Harpers was designed for the popular newsweekly of the same name. It was digitally revived in 2009 by Nick Curtis as Weekly Bazaar NF.
  • Oh You Klid NF (2009, Nick Curtis) is based on the Victorian typeface Euclid from the 1880s.
  • Multiform, created for coloring. No known digitization.
  • Quaint Roman: a great hand-drawn alphabet. Not digitized yet.
  • An 1880 typeface was revived in 2011 by Claude Pelletier as Euclid CP (free download).
  • Gloriosus NF (2014, Nick Curtis) revives Apollo.
  • Chuck Mountain revived Othello (1892) as Chausson CF (2020).
