Twentieth Century is a geometric sans-serif typeface designed by Sol Hess for Lanston Monotype in 1937. It was created as a competitor to the successful Futura typeface for Monotype's hot metal typesetting system. Like Futura it has a single-story 'ɑ' and a straight 'j' with no bend. A very large font family, Twentieth Century is particularly known for a limited range of styles being bundled with many Microsoft products such as Office.

Reprint of the second, revised edition. Discover 1,600 classical as well as bizarre typefaces in one of the most massive tributes to the history of printing and metal types. This edition of American Metal Typefaces of the Twentieth Century contains 300 more typefaces in a clean, attractive format. This well-organized work captures the rapidly disappearing traditions and legacy that metal-type printing has left behind. Much of this information has been lost by the passage of time, and its preservation in this book is essential for anyone studying typefaces, typography, and its history. Structured by alphabetically-listed type families, these typefaces and their variant forms are shown in full alphabets - upper and lower case with numerals and punctuation. The specimens themselves are cleanly reproduced from metal types for maximum clarity. The text is detailed and informative, not only identifying the designer, foundry, and date of issue but also the range of sizes and closely similar designs by other founders. The history, aims, and purpose behind many of these typefaces are also described, along with production problems encountered and individual characteristics. Additional information includes extensive appendices listing common pseudonyms, popular imports, and antique faces, plus American Typefounders, Monotype, and Ludlow series numbers. The indexes provide easy access to typeface names as well as names of designers, punch cutters, matrix engravers, and other tradesman. The history of metal types and printing, now forever preserved, has long affected the spread of human civilization. Oak Knoll Press is proud to offer this work to generations of graphic designers, typographers, printing and graphic arts enthusiasts all over the world.

Anyone that is interested in type faces... metal, photo, digital should have a copy of this outstanding reference work. The typefaces are shown in their entirety with notes that include information about the designer, dates, and foundry. It you are 'new' to type and have not encountered type before digital type, you'll be surprised at the number of type faces that have been recreated in digital form. Information and illustrations of what metal type looks like are included. This is one great book. It's one of my favorites. Highly recommended.

A treasure and much need for letterpress enthusiasts. I especially love the ATF numerical listing. A must have for the letterpress library!!

This was recommended by a professional "type" person as the bible for the reference of typefaces available and in use in the US. There are some obscure missing variants but this book will get you close enough to what you want to know. Large in size 9"x 12"light in weight, easy to use with excellent examples.

Being a Journeyman Letterpress Printer, It's my refrence on matching Metal Type styles. Having the only known complete working collection of Metal Script Fonts for a Ludlow Typograph Machine. I searched the World for them. It gave me the needed knowledge to know all what was available at one time. Any questions [email protected]

It's rare to find one of these books.
