Aaron Burns

An expert typographer from the film type era, he set up a type division at Rapid Typographers. There he helped promote the Typositor, or Photo Typositor (invented in Miami by Murray Friedel in 1959), which improved over the first photo type machine, the Rutherford. Rapid Typographers organized the Visual Graphics Corporation (or VGC) to make the best use of this new technology. Peter bain writes: The owners of Rapid Typographers were impressed enough by Friedels invention to organize the new Visual Graphics Corporation. Initially the endeavor split its headquarters between the existing typographers address in midtown Manhattan and sunny South Florida. The Photo Typositor allowed an operator to see composition letter-by-letter as it was exposed, unlike the Rutherford. It also offered many of Photo-Letterings capabilities at a reduced price. The Typositor, as it became known, ingeniously used the same 2-inch film font format as the Filmotype. It speeded fashionably tight letter and word spacing, achievable in metal only with a razor blade after proofing, and had none of the size limitations of foundry type. VGC and its backers proceeded to convert metal faces to film, and pursued licensing with typefounders. Burns guided the development of the type library at Rapid Typographers / VGC. In 1970, ITC was founded by Aaron Burns, Herb Lubalin and Edward Rondthaler (from Photo-Lettering Inc.). [Google] [MyFonts] [More]  ⦿

Alf R. Becker

Alf Becker (b. St. Louis, MO) was a sign artist in the 1930's and 40's. Beginning in January 1932, at the request of editor E. Thomas Kelly, Becker supplied the Signs of the Times (The National Journal of Display Advertising) magazine's new Art and Design section with an alphabet a month, a project initially predicted to last only two years. Misjudging the popularity of the series, it instead ran for 27 years, ending finally two months before Becker's death in 1959, for a total of 320 alphabets. In late 1941, just ten years after the first alphabet was published, 100 of those alphabets were compiled and published in book form under the title 100 Alphabets, by Alf R. Becker.

The American Sign Museum shows the following death notice, taken from the April 1959 issue of Signs of the Times: A chapter of almost 27 years of extensive influence upon the development if sign and outdoor advertising lettering came to a close March 10 in the passing of Alf R. Becker, whose alphabets had been presented consistently in Signs of the Times since January, 1932. Death came in St. Petersburg,. FL, where he had been hospitalized since last November. The funeral services were in St. Louis, March 16. Mr. Becker had operated a commercial sign business in East St. Louis, IL., and was widely known for his lettering ability when requested 27 years ago by the late E. Thomas Kelley, then editor of Signs of the Times, to do a series of alphabets for the magazine. They had estimated that 24 alphabets which would be presented in a period of two years would serve the purpose. The series was so enthusiastically received and so many readers urged continuation that it was projected indefinitely to eventually each a total of 320 before failing health of Mr. Becker forced him to give up that creative work. His last alphabet for ST appeared in the January issue this year. Countless are the signmen and women who broadened the horizons of their lettering ability by thorough study of Mr. Becker's alphabet. In 1941, his book, "100 Alphabets" was published by Signs of the Times, and all 3,000 copies that were printed were sold out long ago. Numerous requests have been received for a reprinting, but in view of the changes of time in lettering styles, it has not been considered advisable. Mr. Becker's failing health in 1957 influenced him and Mrs. Becker moving to St. Petersburg, where they bought a home, and where he went into semi-retirement. His love of the sign business was such that he continued his alphabets in spite of the problems of his illness.

Many of his faces have art deco influences. LHF Monogram at Letterhead is a digital version of one of his fonts. Other digitizations include Whomp (2006) and Buffet Script (2006) by Alejandro Paul (Sudtipos) and Daffadowndilly (2007) and Stony Island NF (after Becker's art deco face Chicago Modern) and Shaq Attack NF (2011, a wood plank font) by Nick Curtis.

The Fontry (James Stirling and/or Adkins) is undertaking a grand digitization project, and releases free and pay fonts with names that start with ARB, followed by the font number, the font name, and the month and year of issue. In The Fontry's ARB series, we find ARB-187 Moderne Caps AUG-47 (2013, didone), ARB-85 Poster Script (2011, after a 1939 face by Becker), ARB 70 Modern Poster, ARB 93 Steel Moderne, ARB 44 Chicago Modern, ARB 66 Neon (2010, after a 1937 font, +Block, +Line), ARB 85 Modern Poster JAN-39 (2011, after Modern Poster Script, 1939), and ARB 67 Modern Roman, and ARB08ExtremeRomanAUG-32CASNormal (2009; the original is from 1932).

Jeff Levine created a number of typefaces based on Becker's work as well: Kanona JNL (2010), Karaoke JNL (2010), Mocombo JNL (2010). John Davis created LHF Pipeline (2012) based on Becker's designs.

Alphabet Innovations International -- TypeSpectra (Was: MM2000)
[Phil Martin]

Born in Dallas in 1923, and retired in Florida, Phil Martin had an exciting life, which started as a bombardier in WWII, and went on as a piano bar singer, publisher, cartoonist, comedian and typographer. He died in October 2005.

Phil established Alphabet Innovations International in 1969 and TypeSpectra in 1974, and designed most of his 400 faces (read: film fonts for use in the VGC Photo Typositor) there: Agenda (1976), Americana (1972), Arthur (1970, by Roc Mitchell), Aurora Snug (1969), Avalon (1972), Baskerville (1969), Beacon (1987), Bluejack (1974), Borealis (1970, by Roc Mitchell), Britannic (1973), Bulletin (1971), Celebration (1969, by Roc Mitchell), Century S (1975), Cheltenham (1971), Clearface (1973), Cloister (1975), Corporate (1971, by Roc Mitchell), Corporate Image (1971, by Roc Mitchell), Courier B EF (2004, originally done at Scangraphic), Didoni (1969, a knock-off of Pistilli Roman with swashes added), Dimensia and Dimensia Light (1971, by Roc Mitchell), Dominance (1971), Egyptian (1970), Eightball (1971, some report this incorrectly as a VGC face, which has a different face also called Eightball: it was digitized by FontBank as Egbert. Alphabet Innovations' Eightball had other versions called Cueball and Highball, and all three were designed by George Thomas who licensed them to AI), Fat Chance (Rolling Stone) (1971), Fotura Biform (1969), Franklin (1981), Garamond (1975), Globe (1975), Goudy (1969), Harem (1969, aka Margit; digitized and revived in 2006 by Patrick Griffin and Rebecca Alaccari as Johnny), Helserif (1976---I thought this was created by Ed Kelton; anyway, this face is just Helvetica with slabs), Helvetica (1969), Introspect (1971), Jolly Roger (1970, digitized in 2003 by Steve Jackaman at Red Rooster; Martin says that Jolly Roger and Introspect are his two most original designs), Journal (1987), Kabell (1971), Kabello (1970), King Arthur [+Light, Outline] with Guinevere Alternates (1971, by Roc Mitchell), Legothic (1973), Martinique (1970), Mountie (1970), News (1975), Palateno (1969), Pandora (1969), Pazazzma (1980), Perpetua (1969), Plantin (1973), Polonaise (1977; digital version by Claude Pelletier in 2010, called Chopin Script), Primus Malleable (1972), Quaff (1977), Quixotic (1970), Report (1971), Romana (1972), Scenario (1974), Sledge Hammer (1971), Son of Windsor (1970), Stanza (1971, by Roc Mitchell; this angular face was later published by URW), Stark (1970), Supercooper (1970), Swath (1979), Threadgil (1972), Thrust (1971), Timbre (1970), Times (1970), Times Text (1973), Trump (1973), Tuck Roman (1981), Viant (1977), Vixen (1970), Weiss (1973), Wordsworth (1973).

In 1974, he set up TypeSpectra, and created these type families: Adroit (1981), Albert (1974), Analog (1976), Bagatelle (1979), Cartel (1975), Caslon (1979), Criterion (1982), DeVille (1974), Embargo (1975), Heldustry (1978, designed for the video news at the fledgling ABC-Westinghouse 24-hour cable news network in 1978; incorrectly attributed by many to Martin's ex-employee Ed Kelton: download here), Innsbruck (1975), Limelight (1977), Oliver (1981), Opulent [Light and Bold] (1975, by George Brian, an amployee at Alphabet Innovations), Quint (1984), Sequel (1979), Spectral (1974), Welby (1982).

His fonts can be bought at MyFonts.com and at Precisiontype. He warns visitors not to mess with his intellectual property rights, but I wonder how he can have escaped the ire of Linotype by using the name Helvetica. In any case, the fonts were originally made for use on photo display devices and phototypesetters. Some are now available in digital format.

Near the end of his life, Phil's web presence was called MM2000 (dead link).

Check his comments on his own faces. URW sells these faces: URW Adroit, URW Agenda, URW Avernus (after Martin's design from 1972), URW Baskerville AI, URW Beacon, URW Bluejack, URW Cartel, URW Cloister, URW Corporate, URW Criterion, URW Didoni, URW Fat Face, URW Globe, URW Goudy AI, URW Heldustry, URW Helserif, URW Introspect, URW Legothic, URW Martin Gothic, URW Martinique, URW Pandora, URW Polonaise, URW Quint, URW Scenario, URW Souvenir Gothic, Souvenir Gothic Antique (the Souvenit Gothic family was designed by George Brian, an employee of Alphabet Innovations at the time: it was AI's first text family), URW Stanza, URW Stark, URW Timbre, URW Viant, URW Wordsworth.

Interview. Bye Bye Blackbird performed by Phil Martin in Largo, Florida.

The final message on his last web page, posted posthumously read: MARTIN, PHIL, 82, of Largo, died Tuesday (Oct. 4, 2005) at Largo Medical Center. He was born in Dallas and came here after retiring as a writer, singer-songwriter, commercial artist, and comedian. As a high school student, he worked as an assistant artist on the nationally syndicated Ella Cinders, and at 18 wrote and drew Swing Sisson, the Battling Band Leader, for Feature Comics. He was an Army Air Forces veteran of World War II, where he served as a bombardier in Lintz, Austria. On his 28th mission shelling the yards in Lintz, his B-24 was hit and he was listed as missing in action until the war in Europe ended. He was a comedian on The Early Birds Show on WFAA in Dallas. As a commercial artist, he founded two multinational corporations to market typeface designs and is credited for designing 4 percent of all typefaces now used. He also wrote columns and articles for typographic publications. Locally, he sang original lyrics to old pop standards in area piano bars, and in 1999 produced 59 issues of the Web book Millennium Memorandum, changing the title to MM2000 when he issued the first edition of the new Millennium on Jan. 3, 2000. Survivors include his wife, Ann Jones Martin; and a cousin, Lorrie Hankins, Casper, Wyo. National Cremation Society, Largo.

De Nada Industries
[Mike Allard]

Mike Allard (DeNada Industries, Gainesville, FL) is the designer in 1992 of many early shareware fonts. The text provided by DeNada: Founded by a grumpy fellow when some software installation actually required a company name in the registration line. DeNada Industries has grown to include one employee (aka Mike Allard). A producer of typefaces in their early years, De Nada has slowly undeveloped over the years to include the odd Theatre Flyer design for out-rageous amounts of money. Their advertising budget is so severely limited as to preclude your being aware of their existence except by sheer accident. DeNada Industries is one of the slowest growing non-corporate entities in all of North America encompassing a wide variety of activities including: Typeface creation, flyer design, theatrical scenic and lighting design (in conjunction with The Shumway Brothers Moving Company) and a wide variety of other activities that defy specific categorization despite the heroic efforts of our staff. Dafont link. His typefaces:

  • Script faces: Lauren Script, Heather (updated in 2000 by Mario Arturo), Kavaler Kursive, Machine Script, Juliet, Kelly Brown, E-Brant Script, Miss Brooks.
  • Sumdumgoi: a famous oriental simulation face.
  • The Celtic font Viking.
  • Blackletter faces: MikeAllard-PerryGothic.png, Kelly Ann Gothic.

Greg Thompson

Born in Nebraska, 1958. He graduated in 1985 from the Art Center College of Design in Los Angeles, California. In 1989 he began using Fontographer to make PostScript versions of existing typefaces for Chicago area design firms. At the invitation of Roger Black and David Berlow he became the first independent designer to contribute to the Font Bureau library.

Based in Mount Dora, FL, Greg Thompson is the designer of Bodega Sans and Bodega Serif at Font Bureau. Allan Haley reviews Bodega. He also created Agenda, FB Century Bold Condensed (1992, after the 1906 design at ATF by Morris Fuller Benton), Clicker (1992-2005), Commerce (1991, with Rick Valicenti).

About Clicker: Greg Thompson's original soft octagonal Clicker was drawn in 1992 for TV Guide and has since been used by CSI, Pepsi One, and Quicksilver. In 2005, Thompson has expanded the design, initially inspired by machine-readable type, to 44 new styles including italics and small caps.

At Thirstype, he created Ooga Booga (1994, with Rick Valicenti). Bluty (2000) seems to be a copy of Agenda.

Harris Corporation

Company in Melbourne, FL, which seems no longer interested in making fonts. This page tells its history: Alfred and Charles G. Harris set up the Harris Automatic Press Company in 1895 in Niles, OH. The Harris Automatic Press Company was responsible for many printing innovations during the early 1900s including the first commercially successful offset lithographic press and the first two-color offset press. In 1957 Harris-Seybold merged with Intertype Corporation (and thus Harris inherited the Harris-Intertype library!), a world leader in typesetting equipment. The resulting Harris-Intertype Corporation would be responsible for many subsequent innovations in the typesetting industry. In 1974 the name of the company was changed to Harris Corporation, and four years later Harris moved its headquarters from Cleveland to Melbourne, FL. Harris sold its printing equipment business in 1983, and today is a large high tech and communications firm. [Google] [More]  ⦿

Harris-Intertype

Harris inherited the Harris-Intertype library, made up of the faces cut by Intertype to compete with Mergenthaler from WWI onwards. They had a small group of original newspaper and script faces. In the 1930s, C.H. Griffith at Mergenthaler believed the linecaster to be unsuitable for the development of scripts, which led Ed Shaar at Intertype to put his stakes up in this market. Intertype became Harris-Intertype ca. 1960, and Harris ca. 1975. Based in Melbourne, FL, Harris is a small foundry established in 1975, with four fonts: Imperial (note: The New York Times uses Imperial for its text, but it is based on in-house scans of the old metal Imperial, not on the digital versions from Intertype or Linotype), Monterey (1958, billed as Intertype's reaction to ATF's Murray Hill), Nuptial and Nuptial Script. The first three are available from Bitstream. The open outline face Stuyvesant (Bitstream) is also said to be an Intertype font originally, dated 1940. [Google] [MyFonts] [More]  ⦿

Time Digital piece on her: When Heather Loeb started college in Florida two years ago, she had never even been on the Internet, let alone made a font. She was planning to be a nursing student. That changed when she got her first computer. "It was just a progression," she says. "I liked making websites and playing with graphics, and eventually I couldn't find fonts I wanted, and I started to make my own. I saw other people were doing it, so I thought, why not?" Loeb's fonts are witty and fanciful: letters appear silhouetted against the side of a long, snaky dragon, or inside tiny cartoon television sets. At first she found the learning curve steep, but the font community came to the rescue. "People are pretty friendly. When they make fonts, it's because they love fonts, and they'll help you out." Now Loeb has a Web-design business on the side, for which she designs her own alphabets under the nom de font Gyrl Friday. [Google] [More]  ⦿

Herman R. Freund

Intertype vice president for engineering in the 1930s and 1940s, who lived from 1886-1956. His creations include Ideal News&Italic, Regal&Italic, and Regal Bold. He supervised the design of bold faces to accompany Morris F. Benton's News Gothic (1908, ATF) for Intertype.

Mac McGrew: Ideal (originally called Ideal News) was designed by Herman R. Freund for Intertype in 1926, for the New York Times. It has much the appearance of Century Schoolbook, but with shorter ascenders and squattier capitals. The italic is a little closer to Century Expanded Italic, providing more contrast with the roman. Sturdy serifs, substantial hairlines, and open loops make it a practical face for the demanding production requirements of high-speed newspaper use. Ideal Bold is heavier than the Century bold faces.

Mac McGrew: Regal was created for the Chicago Tribune, designed by Herman R. Freund and introduced by Intertype in 1935, with Regal Bold following in 1937. This is primarily a newspaper face, rather wide, with large x-height and short ascenders and descenders, similar to Ideal but a little lighter. Also compare Paragon.

Intertype
[Gilbert Powderly Farrar]

Defunct foundry. One of its typographic directors was Gilbert Powderly Farrar (1886-1957), who designed Bert Black. Intertype's typefaces include Monterey (1958, Rand Holub, its "version" of Murray Hill; available from Bitstream now), Imperial (designed by Ed Schaar; now a Bitstream font), Intertype Vogue (ca. 1930, see Am Sans by Volker Busse for a free digital version), Stuyvesant (1940, now available from Bitstreeam), and Nuptial Script (now an Adobe font).

MyFonts writes: Harris inherited the Harris-Intertype library, made up of the faces cut by Intertype to compete with Mergenthaler from the First World War. A small group of original typefaces centers on newspaper faces and scripts. In the thirties C.H. Griffith at Mergenthaler believed the linecaster to be unsuitable for the development of scripts, which led Ed Schaar at Intertype to claim this market as their own. Intertype became Harris-Intertype ca. 1960, and Harris ca. 1975.

Cyrillic faces in their library, ca. 1930. The firm still exists as Harris Corporations in Melbourne, FL, but is no longer producing fonts.

Leonard Spencer, in his article Linotype / Intertype Linecasting Machines How They Differ writes: Intertype started as International Typesetting Machine Company in 1911. Many of first machines were rebuilt Linotype bases with improvements patented by the new company. When World War I broke out, International Typesetting Machine Company was reorganized as the Intertype Corporation, and by 1917 had three machines for sale: Model A one magazine, Model B two magazine, Model C three magazine. Intertype was first in cold type with its Fotosetter in 1950. This machine continued the circulating matrix principle but had film image instead of the punched character. Stuart Sandler adds this piece of information: The Harris-Intertype Fotosetter was the first photo typesetting machine invented. It marks the beginning of the Cold Type era and is the machine responsible for it . . . Incidentally this is the machine that inspired the creation of the Filmotype by its inventor Allan Friedman when he saw it unveiled to US audiences in 1948. Instead of lead slugs, the Intertype which was a Linotype machine had replaced them with small film negatives and proceeded to set type as you would imagine the bastardization of a lead type and photo type machine only could. There are many reasons Cold Type caught on and it became the standard some time after that period till digital typesetting machines like the Alphatype came into their own. It wasn't until the release of the first MacIntosh in 1984 when Cold Type was eclipsed by desktop publishing.

Mac McGrew: Ideal (originally called Ideal News) was designed by Herman R. Freund for Intertype in 1926, for the New York Times. It has much the appearance of Century Schoolbook, but with shorter ascenders and squattier capitals. The italic is a little closer to Century Expanded Italic, providing more contrast with the roman. Sturdy serifs, substantial hairlines, and open loops make it a practical face for the demanding production requirements of high-speed newspaper use. Ideal Bold is heavier than the Century bold faces.

View a few digital typefaces with roots in the Intertype collection.

Another famous type is Cairo. Mac McGrew: Cairo is Intertype's adaptation of Memphis, originally designed by Rudolf Weiss for Stempel in Germany about 1929, and first imported into the United States as Girder. Except for Litho Antique, this was the first of the modern square-serif faces, which are revivals of older faces known as Egyptians. The Intertype faces appeared in 1933 to 1940. Lining Cairo features several sizes of caps on 6- and 12-point bodies in the manner of Copperplate Gothic. Compare Memphis, Stymie, Karnak.

In early 2009, I removed my web site from the Internet. I have done enough of it, and reached the stage in my life where I want to spend time doing other things. I have left this page for a couple of extra months, so that occasional visitors can find it, before I finally remove everything. I now live in Ormond Beach, Florida USA. Formerly, I was in Aptos, California USA. My name is prominent on the Internet due to my music fonts, fiction, essays, and travel comments.

The program itself used Delaunay triangles along with a complicated algorithm to turn any image into a beautifully stylish work of art. I got in touch with the creator of the app, Dofl Yun, and told him that I was interested in fleshing out a typeface inspired by D in the DMesh logo. He was excited about the prospect of there being a proper typeface related to his app. Dofl gave me his blessing and the result was the project you see here.

In 2013, he published Sans Comedy (or Sans Comic), in which he gave Comic Sans the hipster treatment.

Southern Software Inc. (SSi)

Port Charlotte, FL-based company owned by the infamous Paul Eric King (pastor of Harborview Christian Church in the same city, b. Stormlaks, IA, 1954), who has reengineered most of Monotype's and Adobe's fonts over the years. Example: Just My Type CD $29.95 3360 fonts. Not a foundry, but moderately good copied fonts; president Paul King. The Key Fonts Pro 3003 for Macintosh has the same old rip-off fonts found on the older 1555 Key Fonts Pro CD, plus a few new fonts ripped off from new victims. Incredibly, the Postscript versions come without AFM files and are thus useless. Apparently, the kerning present in the TrueType versions or the IBM PostScript versions is the pits, so the whole set is worthless, and proves that King, who is being sued by Adobe, knows nothing about fonts and does not care about quality. Paul King ignores my email regarding the kerning/AFM matter. By the way, the entire TrueType collection on the CD was recently posted on alt.binaries.fonts, so there is really no need to even spend 30 dollars. The kerning pairs on the 1555 Key Fonts Pro CD in contrast were much better. Also, all his fonts can be extracted from the PDF files if you convert these files to PS. Please, do not buy King's CD's. Condemned in court in February 1998 for violation of copyright.

King's legal troubles continue on another front: he was arrested on July 2, 2001, for allegedly paddling a child so hard he left bruises. In all, he faces eight accusations of alleged child abuse. The trial started in August 2002. He was convicted in November 2002 and was sentenced on December 30, 2002. Relevant web sites: crime record, Sun Herald (select "Search News Archives", respond "YES" that you are a subscriber, enter "Paul King" for the search keywords (don't use quotes), click Begin Search), Herald Tribune (select Archives (in the left column under Services), enter keywords "paul king" (you must use quotation marks)), NBC, ABC, Booking document (click on Case Number, enter "01000534F", click on Documents).

Pandemic comes with the following chilling story: On Vozrozhdeniya Island in the Aral Sea, the strongest recipes of smallpox were tested. Suddenly I was informed that there were mysterious cases of mortalities in Aralsk. A research ship of the Aral fleet came to within 15 km of the island (it was forbidden to come any closer than 40 km). The lab technician of this ship took samples of plankton twice a day from the top deck. The smallpox formulation---400 gr. of which was exploded on the island---"got her" and she became infected. After returning home to Aralsk, she infected several people including children. All of them died. I suspected the reason for this and called the Chief of General Staff of Ministry of Defense and requested to forbid the stop of the Alma-Ata Moscow train in Aralsk. As a result, the epidemic around the country was prevented. I called Andropov, who at that time was Chief of KGB, and informed him of the exclusive recipe of smallpox obtained on Vozrazhdenie Island.

Stone Type Foundry
[Sumner Stone]

The Stone Type Foundry in Guinda (ex-Rumsey and ex-Palo Alto), CA, is Sumner Stone's outfit, which he founded in 1990. Born in Venice, Florida in 1945, Sumner Stone is a major designer, and creator of the Stone family. He studied calligraphy with Lloyd Reynolds at Reed College in Portland, Oregon, and then went to work for Hallmark cards as a lettering artist. In 1979, he became type director at Autologic , and in 1984, he became the Director of Typography at Adobe Systems (until 1989). His typefaces:

  • Arepo (1995, a modern text family). This is related to his SFPL family developed for the San Francisco Public Library in 1999 and 2003.
  • Basalt, which won an award at Bukvaraz 2001 and was first used for signage at the Cecil H. Green Library of Stanford University.
  • Stone (1987, ITC), which comes in ITC Stone Sans, ITC Stone Serif, and ITC Stone Informal. Stone Humanist Sans appeared in 2005. In 2010, he published Stone Sans II (+Condensed). The ITC Stone family was co-designed by John Renner.
  • Stone Print (1991), designed for Print: America's Graphic Design Magazine.
  • Stone Phonetic (with John Renner, 1992).
  • ITC Bodoni Six (1994), ITC Bodoni Twelve, ITC Bodoni 72 (1994-1995), ITC Bodoni Ornaments (1994), Bodoni Display Figures. Based on Bodoni's original designs, there are 6, 12 and 72-point optical sizes. The family was developed under Stone's guidance who was partially aided by Holly Goldsmith (Six Roman), Janice Prescorescott-Fishman (Seventy-two Roman) and Jim Parkinson (Six Italic).
  • SFPL: part of a new identity of the San Francisco Public Library.
  • Leaves&Straw (a leaves and straw dingbat font).
  • Cycles (2004): this comes in 7 optical scales: 5, 7, 9, 11, 18, 24 and 36pt, each in numerous weights and figure styles.
  • Magma (2004), Magma Halo (2004) and Magma Thin (2009) are extensive informal humanist sans text families that coule be used as Greek simulation faces.
  • Halo uses an interesting process to the base characters of a font.
  • Munc (2005) is the uncial version of Magma. It has some Basque influences.
  • Silica (1993) is a humanist slab serif.
  • Scripps College commissioned his revival of Scripps College Old Style (1997, now at Agfa-Monotype), originally designed by Frederic Goudy [note: if you want to buy this, consider also Beatty's Goudy Claremont, another good revival of that family].
  • Numa is an Etruscan letterform used in centuries -7 through -3. While roman, it is runic and chiseled in appearance. See also Numaiota.
  • Tuff (+Halo, +School, 2008-2009) started from his Magma. This flared informal typeface is slightly Greek in its vision, and has hints of Morris Fuller Benton's Souvenir, Stone's own ITC Stone Informal, and Dennis Pasternak's Maiandra.
  • Popvlvs (2010), Davanti (2010) and Sator (1995), roman inscriptional typefaces.

At ATypI 2007 in Brighton, he spoke about The foundation of the humanistic sans serif. As of 2008, his entire collection can be licensed for 20 computers in an educational lab for just 300 dollars.

Inventors of the Photo Typositor.

List of typefaces and designers as compiled by Tim Ryan. This list has errors, as pointed out in this discussion on typophile.

My own list of typefaces. Typefaces in our list whose creators still need to be identified include Bubble (1982) and Rodin (ca. 1974).

The 450-page book Visual Graphics Alphabet Library (1985) shows all of its typefaces. PDF version of their 1972 catalog.

There are two components to the VGC collection, one is the standard collection of typefaces everyone must have (knockoffs, really), and the other one is the collection of originals. Freddy Nader explains: The reason for the VGC/Typositor catalog showing so many standards is this: in photo type days, every type house had to have a basic set of what was known as the "foundry types". These were your basic Garamonds, Baskervilles, Clarendons, etc. They simply did that in order to compete. Back then, the type house worked closely with the person designing the artwork (who usually worked for the publisher or the ad agency), and they were charging per word for display, and per page for text. So the type houses wanted to maintain a kind of continuity with their clients, and tried their hardest to be the exclusive supplier for a number of agencies. The very first photo type house, Photo-Lettering Inc, survived for the longest time on one client (J. Walter Thompson in NYC). As a side note, book publishers tried their best to stay away from photo type because of its very expensive prices. It was a hell of a lot cheaper to stick to metal type than pay the type house per page of layout. So if you look back at the mass paperback industry, it was still using metal type until late into the 1970s. The only switched to film type when competition between type houses became so fierce that the type prices dropped considerably. But film type was used in book for only a short time, then desktop publishing as we know it made it all obsolete.
