Typefounders in Paris. Their work can be found in this specimen book (Paris, ca. 1890). No full specimens in this publication, which has many of the useless typefaces of the late 19th century. The No. 549-553 typefaces are of the "Ronde" script style. Also standing out is No. 670, the Initiales Ornées Vénitien Romain, a very light typeface with frivolous border-like ornaments in the glyphs. [Google] [More] ⦿

Montrealer who designed ITC Redonda (1998, an upright ronde script), Baylac (a psychedelic font fdirst done at Agfa, and then at ITC) and the Comic Strip family. Planned are the calligraphic font Herald (for Font Bureau), the protest font Infamy, and Robin Hood. He created the following Agfa Creative Alliance fonts: Evita (1998, now an ITC font: an organic roundisch script), Baylac, Link, Lineale, Iona, Marnie and Toots (1997, based on calligraphy by Villu Toots). He designed the great calligraphic font Scrivener in 2000 (I guess the Herald project at Font Bureau must be dead then).

Antoine Monnoyer was master printer in Paris in 1618, and ran the print shop until 1634, when (his son?) Pierre Monnoyer took over. There is a historical hole after that, until Jean Baptiste Monnoyer (b. 1688, d. 1777, Joinville), who was a printer for the duke of Orleans in Joinville. Charles Monnoyer (b. 1720, joinville, d. 1793, Le Mans) became the printer of the king and the bishop of Le Mans, where he established himself in 1751. He headed the business until 1789.

Type designer (b. 1955, Indiana) who lives in Michigan City, IN. While living in NYC, he began working for Mergenthaler Linotype, learning the craft of letter drawing and typeface design. For the next 32 years, Jim worked in the Type group at both Linotype and Bitstream. When Monotype acquired Bitstream early 2011, Jim chose to go solo by founding Stiggy & Sands together with Brian Bonislawsky. He is also a partner at BluHead Studio, where he digitizes old photo fonts by Joseph Churchward. Jim is also active in Stuart Sandler's Filmotype project, where he has resurrected several typefaces, including Filmotype Reef and Filmotype Jade.
At Bitstream, he did in-house work, and had his signature on Candy Bits (1996, an M&M simulation font), Prima Sans (1998), Prima Serif (1998), Prima Sans Monospace (Bitstream, with Sue Zafarana, 1998) and Bitstream Vera (2003).
According to Lyles, Bitstream Vera is actually a detuned Bitstream Prima. Gnome asked that we modify some of the characters in the monospace, particularly for coding legibility. We added a center dot to the zero and modified the lcase l to distinquish it from the figure one. Although I designed Vera (Prima), it was actually Sue Zafarana who adapted it to a mono version, at times a very challenging task. The Vera fonts are also here.
Vera Sans is at the basis of Menlo (2009), a Snow Leopard system font, about which Apple writes: Apple's Menlo is based upon the Open Source font Bitstream Vera and the public domain font Deja Vu.
He revived some Filmotype fonts from the 1950s: Filmotype Jade (2012, based on an original connected script typeface from 1955), Filmotype Reef (2011), Filmotype MacBeth (2007), and Filmotype Austin (2009, brush face).
In 2012, he created a gracious upright script face, Stalemate, which can be downloaded from Google Web Fonts.
The upright connected script Grand Hotel (2012, Google Web Fonts, with Brian Bonislawsky for Astigmatic) finds its inspiration from the title screen of the 1937 film "Cafe Metropole" starring Tyrone Power. The free Rum Raisin was published at Astigmatic One Eye.
Stiggy & Sands is the American type foundry of Brian Bonislawsky and Jim Lyles, est. 2013. Their first commercial typefaces, all jointly designed, are Luckiest Guy Pro (a fat comic book font based on vintage 1950s ads) and Marcellus Pro (a flared roman inscriptional typeface with both upper and lower case, originally published in 2012 by Astigmatic; CTAN link).
At Hamilton Wood Type, he designed HWT Roman Extended Fatface (2014), which is based on 19th century didone wood styles.
In 2016, Brian J. Bonislawasky and Jim Lyles published the rugged octagonal mega typeface family Tradesman and the techno typeface Offroad at Grype.
In 2018, he published the connected script typeface Michiana Pro at BluHead Studio.

Or Nicolas Gando. French calligrapher, engraver and type founder, d. ca. 1767. He acquired the types of Claude Lamesle: Épreuves générales des caracteres provenants de la fonderie de Claude Lamesle, lesquels se trouvent présentement dans celle de Nicolas Gando, l'aîné (Paris, Cloître S. Julien le Pauvre, 1758). See also Epreuve des caractères de la fonderie Gando (Paris, Cloistre Saint Julien le Pauvre, imprimerie Jacques Guerin, 1745; local download), Recueil d'ornemens qui comprennent les différentes combinaisons des vignettes de la fonderie de N. Gando (1745; local download), and Epreuves des caractères de la fonderie Gando, père et fils (Paris, Cloître Saint Julien le Pauvre, 1760). His son is Pierre-François. He was involved in music typography and wrote an angry response Observations sur le traité historique et critique de M. Fournier (1766) as a reaction to accusations of plagiarism made by Pierre-Simon Fournier in 1765 in Traité historique et critique sur l'origine et les progrès des caractères de fonte pour l'impression de la musique. A 170-page specimen book was published in 1810: Specimen des caractères de la fonderie de N.P. Gando à Paris et de son fils TH. S. Gandon à Bruxelles. [facsimile reprint in 1992 by Lane and Lommen] This shows that his son, Th. S. Gando, had set up shop in Brussels. Nicolas Gando is often associated with the upright connected script style. Digital versions of his typefaces include Gando Ronde (a formal script by H.J. Hunziker and Matthew Carter in 1970; Linotype), French 111 (at Bitstream) and Gando BT (at Bitstream). Typo Upright / Linoscript is a genetically slightly different family of rondes (compare the k's). [Google]

Moscow-based designer of the free font Tagesschrift (2005, Yanone, done together with Jan Gerner, A. Korolkova and V. Yefimov). Fontdeck link, where she is credited with the Paratype typeface PT Sans (2010). PT Sans can also be downloaded at Alex Barakin's site, at Fontspace, at Github, and at CTAN. Open Font Library link. The companion family PT Serif is also at CTAN. The full family, co-designed with Alexandra Korolkova and Vladimir Yefimov, will set you back over 1000 dollars however.
Federico (2007) is based on the handwriting of Spanish poet and playwright Federico Garcia Lorca (1898-1936).
Pragmatica Slab (2011, Paratype, Olga Umpeleva and Vladimir Yefimov) was designed as a complement to the popular type family Pragmatica by Vladimir Yefimov and Isabella Chaeva (1989-2004) by the addition of square slab serifs. Paratype writes: Pragmatica Slabserif was designed as a complement to the popular type family Pragmatica by Vladimir Yefimov and Isabella Chaeva (1989-2004) by addition of square serifs. Inspired by Helserif (Phil Martin, 1978 [note from Luc to self: I think Paratype errs here, since Ed Kelton made Helserif in 1976]) which was formed in the same way by addition of square serifs to Helvetica (Eduard Hoffman and Max Miedinger, 1957). First sketches of Pragmatica Slabserif were created by Vladimir Yefimov in 1988 during development of Pragmatica. Olga Umpeleva designed the whole slabserif type family of six weights basing on that sketches.
She also did an upright connected educational script in 2011 at Paratype: Little Cecily (based on a Russian calligraphy sample book for primary schools, Propisi pryamogo pisma (Moscow, 1914)). Such scripts were implemented in school programs at the end of the 19th and the beginning of the 20th century.
In 2012, Olga published the curly upright script typeface Sevillana (Google Web Fonts, Brownfox Foundry) and the playful decorative typeface Henny Penny (Google Web Fonts and Brownfox).

Kudryashev Display is a set of light and high-contrast typefaces based on Kudryashev text typeface. In addition to Kudryashev Display and Kudryashev Headline typefaces, the type family includes also two Peignotian sans-serif typefaces of the same weight and contrast, with some alternates. The serif styles were designed by Olga Umpeleva in 2011, the sans styles were created by Isabella Chaeva in 2015 with the participation of Alexandra Korolkova. The typeface was released by ParaType in 2015. Still in 2015, she designed Federico (a typeface based on the handwriting of Spanish poet and playwright Federico Garcia Lorca (1898-1936)).

He was involved and leading designs and redesigns in more than fifty magazines, newspapers and websites like Time Inc Expansion, Editorial Televisa, Reforma, El Universal and Khaleej Times newspapers. Nowadays he is Group Design Director for Harper's Bazaar Arabia and is based in Dubai.
Designer of Fabrica Texto (Italica, Versalita, Bold, 2008) and Lucrecia Texto (Itálica, Versalita, Bold), both winners in the Tipos Latinos 2008 competition for best text family. Grand prize winner at Tipos Latinos 2010 for his titling type family Carlota. Other typefaces by him include Aion, Moneda, and Condesa.
Viga (2011, free at Google Web Fonts) is a heavy angry macho sans.
In 2012, he created Amate, a type that was designed for a newspaper in Cuernavaca. Calavera (2012, Cocijotype) is an ornamental display typeface that is based on the Mexican Tuscan letter style and on the work by Mexican engraver Manuel Manilla. It won an award at Tipos Latinos 2014. Dorotea (2012) is a Latin / Greek / Cyrillic typeface family created for text in books and periodicals. The name is in honor to Dorothy Abbe, typographer, puppeter and close friend of William Addison Dwiggins.
At ATypI 2009 in Mexico City, he spoke eloquently about Boudewijn Ietswaart and the development of the Balduino typeface (by the Círculo de Tipógrafos).
In 2014, he created the curly ronde script typeface Bistro for Gastronomie Magazine.
He lives in Mexico City and is Design Editor at GEE. Founding member of Círculo de Tipógrafos in Mexico.
In 2010, Cristobal Henestrosa strated work on Charter, which is based on an experimental typeface named Charter, designed yet never fully finished by William Addison Dwiggins. It is an upright italic, unconnected script typeface, whose main features are a pronounced contrast, condensed forms and exaggerated ascenders. While Dwiggins worked on this project from 1937 to 1955, he only completed the lowercase and a few other characters. However, it was used to set a specimen in 1942 and a short novel in 1946. The sources that Cristobal used for Royal Charter (and later, Mon Nicolette) were the original sketches by WAD as well as printing trails kept at the Boston Public Library, and a copy of the 1946 edition of The Song-Story of Aucassin and Nicolette. This gorgeous typeface can be used successfully in headlines, subheads and short passages of text from 12 points onwards. It was published in 2020 as Mon Nicolette at Sudtipos, where the help of Oscar Yanez was acknowledged. Mon Nicolette also comes in a variable format with weight and optical size axes.

Artist and type designer at Barnhart Brothers&Spindler, 1874-1932, who lived in Chicago. Creator of many typefaces:
Dover Press sold Oakland's Dan X. Solo's digitizations. Dan Solo (b. 1928, d. 2012) has collected over 13,000 sets of metal fonts, starting when he was 9 years old and growing up in Oakland, CA. Finally, in 2002, he stopped doing that and began converting all of his fonts to computer type. Solotype, his company, was established in Alameda, CA. He printed 30 books on fonts (with Dover), including The Solotype catalog of 4,147 display typefaces, and created hundreds of fonts. In 2007, Dan Solo retired from the font business. He died in 2012.
Robert Trogman writes: I know Dan X. Solo personally. He ran a typographic studio in Berkeley for over 30 years. He had a large collection of film fonts, including some of my own. He created thousands of fonts and is now retired and is an avocational prestigitator. Copyrights have run out on most of his fonts. He also protected himself by creating pseudonyms on the questionable font names. Stuart Sandler confirms that many of the fonts in Solo's Dover books are in fact from the Filmotype collection, which Stuart is digitizing right now.
Gene Gable writes: Dan Solo of Solotype in Berkeley was experimenting with photo type as early as 1945 and started doing optical special effects in the early '60s. And a number of the larger display-type shops developed their own techniques. But in terms of opening up new markets for display type (and giving designers more control over type setting), Visual Graphics and Letraset lead the way. These companies were proud of, and promoted, the fact that that their products could be used by non-typesetters with little training.
Bio. He wrote about himself: Dan X. Solo The Solotype Archive was begun in 1942 when I was 14. I was a kid printer for several years before that. At 16, after a quick three months of training, I dropped out of school and went to work full time as a radio actor and announcer in San Francisco. (Easy to get jobs in those days, due to the war-induced manpower shortage.) In 1949 and 1950, I created a magic show which played West Coast theatres with some success. After that, back to broadcasting. By 1962, I was completely burned out on radio, so I decided to see if I could make a living with my collection of antique types, which numbered about a thousand fonts at that time. In 1962, I sent out 4,000 catalogs showing the type to ad agencies all over the U.S. The timing was perfect (no thanks to me) because there was developing at that time a renewed interest in the old types. Business took off immediately. The Solotype collection was one of four commercial collections at the time, but I seemed to have been more aggressive in marketing than the other chaps. (Well, Morgan Press certainly knew how to market.) Two years into the business, I began to collect alphabets on paper for conversion to photo lettering, which was just becoming mainstream in the type business. We closed the shop for a month every year and went on a type hunt, mostly in Europe where there didn't seem to be much competition among collectors. Other typographers couldn't understand how we could do this, but I believe it made people appreciate the resource we offered even more. Over the years, the collection became quite large. When I closed Solotype a couple of years ago, I got rid of about half the archive (because the fonts were dull, or already digitized, or for a variety of other reasons) leaving me with about 6,000 fonts on paper or film. In 1974, I began to supply Dover Publications with mechanicals for books of 100 alphabets on a particular theme. I did 30 of these books over the years, and 30 more of printers' ornaments, borders, and so forth. Sometime in the 1990s, Dover asked me to digitize books of 24 fonts each, to be sold with a disk in the back. I did 12 of these. The Dover relationship came to an end when Hayward Cirker, the owner and my special friend, died and the company was sold to another publisher. Dover felt that they had covered the type field thoroughly. Now in my old age, my wife and I have a mindreading act that is great fun and good for the ego. Even so, when not traveling, I digitize type for relaxation and enjoyment, but have made no effort to sell it. Until now.
Solo's wood type/Western/ headline/ Victorian collection includes Acantha, Bindweed, Dime Museum (2004, a French Clarendon revived by ATF in 1933 under the name P.T.

Founded in 1819 in Sheffield by toolmaker John Stephenson (died in 1864), silversmith William Garnett and financier James Blake, initially largely based on the purchase of the foundry of William Caslon III and IV in 1819. In 1829 Garnett left to become a farmer. The company was renamed Blake&Stephenson in 1830, but Blake died soon after. It became Stephenson, Blake&Co. in 1841. John Stephenson died in 1864, the year after he handed control to his son Henry. The company grew by acquiring most British typefoundries: Fann Street Foundry (1906); Fry's Type Street Letter Foundry; H.W. Caslon&Sons (1937); Miller&Richard (1952). The matrices and other old typographic equipment to Monotype and can be seen in the Type Museum of London. MyFonts provides this update: Members of both the Stephenson and Blake families still sit on the board of the present company. In 2001, according to managing director Tom Blake, the foundry was still producing some type in zinc, but by 2005 the company was wound up. There are plans to turn the former premises into an apartment complex.
In 1996, all remaining materials (punches, matrices, specimen books) were sold to Justin Howes' Type Museum. The information in The Ancestry of British Typefounding and the complete list of the Stephenson-Blake typefaces comes from Roy Millington's Stephenson Blake The Last of the Old English Typefounders, The British Library, London, 2002. Today, Stephenson Blake continues in manufacturing only.

Typo Upright is a ronde style upright script that originated from the Inland Type Foundry as French Script.
MacMcGrew: Typo Upright is Morris Benton's interpretation in 1905 of a popular style of vertical French Script, introduced by ATF as Tiffany Upright. It is the only such design suitable for adaptation to keyboard slug casting, and is called Lino Script and Interscript by the two leaders in that field. There is also Typo Upright Bold and Typo Shaded, both recorded as being designed by Benton in 1906, but only the latter is noted as having the Tiffany name originally. These two typefaces are adaptations of the Typo Upright design. Finally there is Typo Slope, a sharply inclined version of the same design; it is credited to Benton in 1905, originally as Tiffany Slope. The lowercase of this typeface is more nearly a conventional script, while the caps show the French influence. Typo Upright was copied by Western as Society Script. Also see French Plate Script.
Stephenson Blake's version of this design is Parisian Ronde.
Typo Upright is also known as French Script, Interscript, Kaylin Script and Linoscript. Digital versions include French Script (Monotype), Typo Upright (Bitstream), Linoscript (Adobe), and Ronde Script (2012, Group Type). [Google] [More] ⦿

German foundry establshed in 1888 by Theodor Robert Arthur Schmidt and Ludwig Wagner in Leipzig. In 1902, Ludwig Wagner quit and joins Gundelach&Ebersbach (first founded in 1897) also in Leipzig, and then opens his own foundry, Ludwig Wagner. Schmidt stops in 1932, while Otto Schmidt takes over--the company is now called Wagner&Schmidt Nachfolger. Otto Schmidt dies in 1941, and the company is dissolved in 1942.
Wagner&Schmidt was responsible for such successful Fraktur typefaces such as Allemannia-Fraktur (see also Ludwig&Mayer, Frankfurt am Main, 1908), Deutschmeister (Berthold Wolpe; the date 1927 has been suggested), Fette Fraktur (well, their own version at least, dated 1875, with present day versions by that name at Adobe and Berthold. Imitations of Fette Fraktur: Fraktur Fett (Greenstreet), Baron&Berliner (Swfte), Bauble (SSi), Luftwaffe (WSI), F692 Blackletter (SoftMaker), Fraktur (SoftMaker)).
They also made the art nouveau era text typeface Rekord Antiqua (1911: revived in 2020 by Ralph M. Unger as Rekord Antiqua), the upright semiscript Mirabelle (1926, which was digitized and extended by Nick Curtis as Anna Nicole NF (2007)), Donatello (1935), Kurmark (see also Norddeutsche Schriftgießerei, Berlin, 1934), Annonce Grotesque (1914; see also Ludlow), Amanda Ronde (1939; see Stephenson Blake) and Senta (1904).
Under C.E. Weber in Stuttgart, we find these additional typefaces: Colonna Antiqua (1908), Druckhaus Antiqua (1919), Druckhaus Kursiv, Ekkehard (1903), Erika (1920), Margarete (before 1927), Orient Antiqua (1914), Parlements Fraktur (1908) and Progreß Reklameschrift.
In 1936-1937 the company created the Bauhaus-inspired headline sans family Kristall Grotesk, which was digitally revived in Kristall H MfD Pro (2019, Elsner & Flake). [Google] [More] ⦿
St. Louis-based punchcutter and typefounder (1864-1957) who started the Inland Type Foundry in St. Louis in 1895 together with his brothers Carl and Oswald. He is credited with the heavy square-serif typeface Foster (Inland Type foundry, 1905). Mac McGrew says: [Foster] seems rather crude by later Stymie standards-even compared with the earlier Boston Breton-particularly for the narrow G, the wide J, the high-waisted B, P, and R, and several other unusual letters. Condensed Foster, introduced by the same foundry in 1908, is comparable. He goes on: Adcraft Medium was formerly known as Rugged Medium or Alfred [Medium]. It was originated by Inland Type Foundry and patented by William A. Schraubstadter in 1910. About Comstock, McGrew writes: Condensed Comstock was introduced by Inland in 1905, but patented in the name of William A. Schraubstadter in 1908. It has no lowercase, but the design is more contemporary. Monotype has copied both typefaces, but Monotype Comstock Condensed is in 18-point only, without figures. Schraubstadter also created Woodward and Woodward Outline (1894, Inland Type foundry), Winchell Condensed, Webb, French Script, Devinne Recut, Devinne Recut Outline, and many 19th century typefaces.
All notes by Mac McGrew about various typefaces designed by Schraubstadter:
