October’s Los Angeles Printers Fair at the International Printing Museum was a great success, and Skyline enjoyed record sales! IPM is talking about expanding the Fair to a two-day event next year, so save the date—the first weekend in October.
It is with great pleasure that we unveil this month’s new offering: Troyer Ornaments, cast from nothing less than the original American Type Founders matrices. This is a series of decorative elements drawn by Austrian artist Johannes Troyer for ATF. They were released in 1953, and enjoyed enormous popularity. This spectacular series is now once again available, in 36pt, presented in Skyline Collections No. 31, 32 and 33. We’ve done a full write-up on Troyer and how the matrices came to Skyline; it includes ATF’s original showing and can be found on the STF web site, Type & Borders page.
And back in stock with a second casting at last is the long-awaited Arboret Ornament Suite. See our newly updated 3-volume online Specimen Book & Catalog for details on the above, and all our Fonts, Borders, Initials and Collections. Other noteworthy projects are already in progress for next month, so stay tuned—and don’t forget to sign up (at the right) for automatic updates.
