C.E. Coryn

Type designer (1893-1983) of the photo type era who worked for Photolettering Inc. His typefaces there include: Beauchamps Expanded Italic, Belgique Bold, Belgique Bold Italic, Berkshire, Bodoni Bold Italic, Cameroon, Centidot Condensed 2, Centidot Semi Condensed 2, Century Thin, Century, Chateau 2, Classique, Classique Italic, Classique Wide, Continental Condensed, Didot Light, Didot Light Italic, Didot Medium Italic, Didot Bold, Didot Bold ItalicDidot Demi Bold Expanded, Didot Extra Condensed, Distingue Thin, Elite Didot, Elzevir 3, Elzevir 3 Italic, Elzevir 4, Escorial Extra Condensed, Ester, Etroit Didot Condensed 2, Etroit Didot Condensed Obl., Etroit Didot Condensed 3, Expanda, Galaxy Didot, Marquis, Noblesse, Onyx Condensed Italic, Overture Script Light, Palladium, Rheinlander Bodoni Light, Rheinlander Bodoni 4, Soverign 3, Soverign 3 Italic, Venice, Venice Wide.

Several of these typefaces were digitized by the reincarnated PhotoLettering by House Industries. The latter include Coryn Galaxy Didot (2013, Tania Raposo).

There was a discussion on Typedrawerrs in 2021 regarding Photo-Lettering's Centidot Contempora. Florian Hardwig wrote there: Photo-Lettering's Centidots combine Century-like shapes with Didot hairlines. Centidot Contempora is shown in the Alphabet Thesaurus, Vol. 2 (1965) in five numbered weights, without designer credits. It was preceded by Coryn Centidot, drawn by C.E. Coryn (1893-1983). The fact that Centidot Contempora's name isn't preceded by the designer's family name suggests it was produced by the staff of Photo-Lettering, Inc. And as it was derived from an existing idea, no individual designer got credit. As far as I know, there is no digitization available. Stylistically related typefaces [include] Mort Modern, Eames Century Modern, Trivia Serif, Zahrah.
