Letraset catalog
0

Does anyone know if there's a PDF or online version available of any of the old Letraset catalogs, as I can't find one anywhere.

If not, I shall have to get busy scanning my 1989 copy.

Here's one from 2011, but it's like 95% magic markers, and only 5% "Instant Lettering"

You should probably scan the 1989 catalogue. Just to be safe.

Thanks. I did find the sanskritweb PDF, but as you are probably aware, it doesn't show the full founts. Perhaps I should scan my copy for prosterity's sake, plus it may be of interest to some of you Typophiles out there.

adydog: Are you looking for a catalog of Letraset's digital fonts or something earlier - such as a rub-on catalog? I have a 2002-dated Fontek .pdf in a FILE labeled "complete Letraset fonts". It has three pages of short embedded font samples (the font names, mostly) and 50 pages of full font samples (all as outlines)

Herb: It was a digital version of the transfer sheet catalogue that I was really after. I have a hard copy, but I thought it would also be beneficial to have a scanned version as well.

It can be a very useful reference point. For instance, I discovered during one 'hunt', that a font named PALANA by Alan Withers, has never (to my knowledge) been digitised, plus there are some subtle differences in other cuts as well.... Typophile gold !!!

Anyway, it needs to be done before I spill coffee all over it, or in my old age, involuntary dribbling starts occurring ;-)

I have a copy or two of the Letraset catalog from the mid to late '80s somewhere in my archives. One day I'll dig it out. I think there's a Chartpak catalog in there too.

Anything ever come from this discussion? I'd love to see both the Letraset catalog and the Chartpak catalog online. But my Apple ColorOne Scanner is almost as old as the catalogs themselves.
