I did some research and read on a thread here the story about Sean Cavanaugh’s SoftMaker. And whilst doing more research I found this on another thread
“Typeshop Collection”, which, as it seems, is the former Quick Brown Fox “Serials Typecollection”, which is the former Brendel & Pabst “Serial Type Collection”.
I've been wondering about the following. I always like it when the typefaces used in a book are mentioned in the credits. It gives credit to the design and the designer and saves me a lot of Whatthefont sessions ;-) But what if one were to use a typeface that has a different name than the original (I'm thinking for instance about several Bitstream and URW typefaces that had to change the name for copyright purposes). Would you credit it Optus or Optima, Gill Sans or Humanist 521?
