Volume 1, No. 4 (Autumn, 1934) of the occasional journal "Ars Typographica," edited by Frederic W. Goudy. This number contains Goudy's article "Type Design: A Homily." With an original insert from the Continental Typefounders Association offering Goudy's types for sale (this was Melbert B. Cary's company; despite its name it was an importer and reseller of types, not an actual typefoundry). The volume/issue numbering of Ars Typographica is confusing. Goudy started it, and...

A specimen book of typefaces supplied as matrix fonts for the Ludlow Typograph Machine, a non-composing linecaster. This is the hardcover specimen book, produced in four editions (the first was an edition without letter designation which I believe is from June 1930, then there was an edition B, then an as-yet-unattested edition C, and finally this, edition D). This hardcover specimen book is distinct from the more common softcover or comb-bound abridged specimen book published under the name...

This specimen was produced at a point of great change in the American typefounding industry. The owners of the Central Type Foundry (Schraubstadter and St. John) had purchased the Boston Type Foundry in 1888. This specimen book, a joint effort of the two type foundries, is dated 1892. That is the year in which both companies were sold into the newly formed American Type Founders amalgamation. The bulk of the specimen book itself makes no reference to ATF. However, a final page (which is...

An essay in the form of a letter, expanded and edited for publication, from William Addison Dwiggins to Rudolph Ruzicka on the subject of typeface design. It is especially interesting because it explains Dwiggins' own process and goes slightly beyond abstract "design" and outlines the interactions between Dwiggins and the type development organization at Mergenthaler Linotype. "G," mentioned in the text, is Chauncey H. Griffith, typeface designer in his own right, but also...

This is an advertising booklet published in the USA by the Bauer Type Foundry (Germany) in 1937. It argues that Bauer type, while machine-made, retains that "human touch." It is notable for three features, however. First, it was printed by Joseph Blumenthal's Spiral Press, one of the great commercial fine arts presses of the 20th century. It is therefore piece of fine printing uncommon in the advertising world. Second, it acknowledges as valid and important the method of making...

The 1911 Supplement No. 2 to the 1906 American Type Founders' specimen book. It was digitized by Google Books from the University of Michigan copy.

A typographical specimen book showing the unit-set types developed by Linn Boyd Benton under the trade name "Self Spacing" type. It is undated, but loosely slipped into it is a page listing users of "Benton's Self Spacing Type" which has on its back a letter to Benton, Waldo and Co. dated Dec. 18, 1886. A portion of the text of this letter would seem to be the original copy for the showing of Self Spacing Old Style Italic on page 14 of this specimen.
