Collection No. 34 – Alpha-Blox


Dec. 2019:  Our first casting of Alpha-Blox is now sold out. This product requires both milling to height and hand-finishing, which adds a considerable amount of time and labor. There’s a modification to the casting machine that will eliminate the milling, and that’s on the task list. We DO plan to pursue this and get Alpha-Blox back in stock. Stay tuned and watch our monthly News. (Scroll to the bottom of this page to subscribe.)

The second photo above is a diagram printed with Alpha-Blox, showing the designation of each character. It also gives an idea of the quantity of each; if stood in a line they would fill each box with its respective character.

The third photo is a proof of all the Alpha-Blox elements printed together in two-color combination.

The fourth is the American Type Founders specimen sheet from 1944.  (Elements are displayed individually at the bottom of that specimen, but please note that the quantities shown per font are not applicable to the Skyline set.)
