Info on IBM Artisan?
0

My classmate and I (grad students at the Rhode Island School of Design / amateur type designers) are trying to dig up some information on one of the IBM Selectric (II/III) typeball fonts - Artisan. We've found some scans of it online, but nothing on the specific history of that face (designer, year, etc), or any specimens larger than type size. If anyone has any leads, or knows who to get in touch with, that would be much appreciated!

Hmm. I don't know anything about the origin of the sans-serif face Artisan. Or, for that matter, about Adjutant (12)/Delegate (10), which to me looked almost like a monospaced adaptation of Goudy Old Style.
