American Type Founders
Help back my typeface “Cristoforo” via Kickstarter, and choose from cool typographic goodies, including the fonts themselves.
Cristoforo is a revival of some classic Victorian typefaces by Hermann Ihlenburg. It’s also known as the typeface of Call of Cthulhu, the H.P. Lovecraft roleplaying game, and as the original logo for Cracker Jack.
Might anyone have any idea how/where I could get help identifying in what year this ATF brochure was published? The back cover, pictured below, lists their offices, which, I would think, might help identify the year. Where would I find a chronology of what offices ATF had open in what cities for given years?
Nick Sherman designed a new site for our metal type foundry using some web fonts by Font Bureau which reference faces designed by Morris Fuller Benton once cast on our ATF Barth casters. If you are interested in metal type or letterpress I hope you will have a look!
