ABOUT







Mpress Interactive [John Bonadies]

Typefoundry set up in 2013 in Champaign, IL, by John Bonadies who has an MFA in graphic design from the University of Illinois. In 2011, he set up an iPad application in which one can move wooden letters around as in a letterpress. He says: LetterMpress will be a virtual letterpress environment---released first on the iPad---, that will allow anyone to create authentic-looking letterpress designs and prints.

The typefaces are based on letterpress and/or vintage wood type, and have names that are prefixed by MPI.

In 2013, Mpress Interactive published MPI Roman Condensed (based on a typeface from Showcard Machine Company), MPI Old Style, MPI Bodoni Ultra, MPI Sardis (after Warren Chappell's Lydian from 1938, ATF), MPI Republic Gothic, MPI No. 510 (based on a design by William H. Page, 1887), MPI No. 508 (based on William H. Page, 1890), MPI No. 507 (based on William H. Page, 1890), MPI Headline Modified (also called Modified Gothic by some type manufacturers, it is based on a typeface by Hamilton Manufacturing Company from 1897), MPI Gothic, MPI Aldine Extended (based on a 1872 wood type by William H. Page), MPI Antique (slab serif), MPI French Clarendon (based on wood type from 1865 by William H. Page), MPI French Antique (a typical far West saloon font based on wood type by William H.
