University of Amsterdam: Special Collections [Mathieu Lommen]

The library of the University of Amsterdam has many on-line and hard copy collections. Among these, the following stand out:

  • Archief Jan van Krimpen.
  • Collectie Bram de Does. Bram de Does designed Trinité (1982) and Lexicon (1992). His original drawings of Lexicon, for example, have been scanned in and can be viewed (but not downloaded). For a digital descendant of Lexicon, see Lucas Sharp's Eros.
  • Collectie Gerrit Noordzij.
  • Collectie S.L. Hartz. Sem Hartz worked for Johan Enschedé en Zonen in Haarlem. This collection includes archive material on the typeface Juliana (1958).
  • Collectie Tetterode. This collection dating from 1971 is quite extensive (17,000 items), including a lot of material on S.H. de Roos. It covers Tetterode's type work from 1851 onwards.

Mathieu Lommen is an author and book historian who works as a curator at the Special Collections department of the Amsterdam University Library. Mathieu regularly publishes on 19th and 20th century book typography and type design. He is also editor of the scholarly magazine Quaerendo. His books include Dutch Alphabets (2016, De Buitenkant, Amsterdam), Letterproeven van Nederlandse gieterijen / Dutch typefounders specimens (1998, Amsterdam), Bram de Does: Letterontwerper and Typograaf (2003, De Buitenkant), and Nederlandse Belettering Negentiende-Eeuwse Modelboeken (De Buitenkant, Uitgelezen Boeken, Jaargang 17, Nummer 3, 2015).
