ABOUT







Nonpareil Type [Jerry Kelly]

Type foundry offering exclusive typefaces, often revivals or interpretatins of historic types. Their typefaces include:

  • Rilke (Jerry Kelly). A transitional typeface family.
  • Epigrammata (by Jerry Kelly). A titling all caps typeface based on a sixteenth century original possibly cut by Peter Schoeffer, Gutenberg's foreman and a partner at Fust & Schoeffer, the second press in the West.
  • Emerson, by Jerry Kelly. Nonpareil Type writes: Joseph Blumenthal, New York printer and book designer, designed Emerson for his own Spiral Press. In 1931, he traveled to Germany to have Louis Hoell cut the punches, which were then cast by the Bauer foundry for hand composition. First known as Spiral and exclusive to the Press, the typeface was renamed Emerson when Monotype released it commercially, with a companion italic, for machine composition in 1935. Reynold Stone wrote that it avoided the rigidity of a modern face and preserved some of the virtues of the classic Renaissance types. Signature, cited its "open counters, absence of fine lines and sturdy, though not heavy serifs." Monotype deemed it among the twenty classic faces.
  • David Hadash ("New Hebrew"). A Hebrew typeface published by Monotype in 2012, based on Ismar David's David Hebrew from 1954. Monotype's Allan Haley does not mention that Nonpareil made this typeface---the "corporation" trumps the individual in Monotype's culture.
  • Inscripta.
  • Foundry Centaur by Jerry Kelly. Based on Bruce Rogers's Venetian beauty, Centaur, first designed in 1914.
