Typeshop

Recently I’ve noticed on MyFonts that some typefaces are ‘published’ by both Typeshop and Softmaker, i.e. TS Nashville (note the design owner is ‘Quick Brown Fox’) and Nashville Serial.

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”.

Dear Typophiles!

I recently stumbled upon the Glasgow typeface:

I think it’s really neat, so I would like to find out where it originally comes from.

It’s sold by Elsner & Flake as part of their “Typeshop Collection”, which, as it seems, is the former Quick Brown Fox “Serials Typecollection”, which is the former Brendel & Pabst “Serial Type Collection”.

Softmaker sells it, too (as “Glasgow Serial”), as does Red Rooster in two versions (stating on MyFonts it originates from Quick Brown Fox).

While most Brendel & Pabst typefaces are modelled after typefaces from other foundries, I couldn’t find out anything about Glasgow. Could this be a Brendel & Pabst original?

I hope someone can shed light on this!
