The new face Quartz, presented in April, has enjoyed modest success with an even dozen fonts sold so far. For May we bring you Collection No. 61. These four elements are part of a set called Mural Ornaments shown in two sizes by American Type Founders in their catalog and specimen book of 1898. The designs were copied by Monotype who offered matrices for them some years later; Skyline has some of these in the vault and that’s what was used in the casting of this Collection. All are on 36 point em-body.
We have a couple of other casting projects in progress (as always) but none quite ready in time for the regular first of the month announcement. Eleven new postings of used fonts were made to The Junk Bin. Time to uncover the turbine vents on the foundry roof, and on we go into summer.
