Typefaces Available from U.S. Foundries

This page contains a listing of typefaces that were available for sale in 2000 from six typefounders:

M & H Type (Mackenzie & Harris)
Swamp Press
Barco Type (F & S Type Founders Inc.)
Quaker City Type Foundry
Michael and Winifred Bixler
Harold Berliner

Much has changed since this page was first put together:

  • In 2004, Harold Berliner sold his typecasting equipment to Offizin Parnassia - Vättis of Switzerland. They continue to sell the Berliner typefaces, as well as many others.

     

  • Skyline Type opened in 2004. In 2010, they acquired the mats held by Barco Type.

     

  • Other foundries have expanded their offerings.

Rather than perform a time-consuming comprehensive update of current type offerings, this page will remain a snapshot of what faces were available at the beginning of the twenty-first century. The faces listed here are still available (although in the case of Berliner and Barco, from new owners), but you should check with the foundries for a complete listing of typefaces.

The book American Metal Typefaces of the Twentieth Century by Mac McGrew (published in 1993 by Oak Knoll Books, 310 Delaware St., New Castle, DE 19720) was an enormous help when putting the list together. This book lists the standard and alternate names of typefaces, their sources, and background information. Of particular use was Appendix V: Lanston Monotype Series Numbers, Numerical Index.

Most of the active foundries use matrices created for Monotype machines. The majority of faces cast in the US are from matrices created by the Lanston Monotype Machine Company, although a significant number of "English Monotype" matrices are also available. Sometimes faces from American Type Founders, Ludlow, Linotype, or Intertype have been adapted for casting. In the table below, the following notations appear in brackets following the typeface name when the source is not Lanston Monotype:

  • ATF: American Typefounders Company
  • Balto: Baltimore Type & Composition Company
  • Bauer: Bauer Foundry, Germany
  • EMono: The Monotype Corporation, England
  • Inter: Intertype Corporation
  • Lino: Mergenthaler Linotype Company
  • Ludlow: Ludlow Typograph Company
  • Univ: Universal Type Foundry

The second column lists the Lanston Monotype identification number, when available, or the English Monotype number preceeded by the letter "E". (Most of the English Monotype id numbers were provided by Harold Berliner.)

The remaining columns indicate what each of the six foundries offer. When a foundry uses the standard composition suffix to indicate the class of face, that suffix appears in the column:

  • A Modern Roman
  • B Small Caps
  • C Modern Italic
  • E Old Style Roman
  • F Old Style Small Caps
  • G Old Style Italic
  • J Gothic or Bold Roman
  • K Gothic or Bold Italic
  • L Typewriter
  • M Foreign Faces

If the foundry uses the series number without the suffix, an "x" appears in the column. When a number appears in a foundry's column it means the typeface is listed with a number different from the Monotype number. If the foundry included only the typeface name (no number) in its catalog, the entry is "Yes". Whenever a foundry's listing does not match Mac McGrew's standard name, I included a "+" in its entry and reference the foundry's alternate name in the lists following the main table.

If you find a typface you are interested in purchasing, contact the foundry and ask what sizes are available and the price. Happy hunting!
