Re: [BKARTS] Emerson type



Imke,

        Emerson is a lovely face, designed by the late Joseph
Blumenthal, proprietor of the Spiral Press in New York. American Type
Founders (ATF) is long departed, having gone out of business in the
early 1990's after a decline of many years. The last surviving type
caster there (and the currently acknowledged Dean of American type
founders) is Theo Rehak, of the Dale Guild Foundry (www.daleguild.com).
        However, there are a number of small foundries that can still
cast Emerson for you, including Harold Berliner
(http://www.berlinerpress.com/) and I believe M&H Type
(http://www.arionpress.com/mandh/catalog.htm).
        By far the best way to reach letterpress printers is through the
LETPRESS mailing list, which goes to some 600-700 printers around the
world, and is quite active. The archives, and full subscription
information, is at http://hermes.csd.unb.ca/archives/letpress.html. For
those without Internet access, the best routes are through The Printer
newspaper and membership organizations such as the Amalgamated Printers
Association. Contact information for all these, and more, can be found
on the excellent Briar Press web site, at http://www.briarpress.org.
Good luck!

Dear list,
once again I am relying on your help and expertise..

Does anyone know where to find Emerson type?
And secondly does anyone know the website or email for the American Type
Foundery?

Thirdly any idea how to reach all the printers out there that don't use
the
internet much?

Thanks again,
