Status of THP Revival Projects

 

Like the one suggesting revival projects, this chart lacks thumbnail images originally uploaded to dropbox.com (where the “public” folder is now “private”). They will be restored ASAP. In the meantime, all links to forum topics discussing these fonts are active and many of them display or link to specimens.


Profound thanks to generous Partners, who have furnished hundreds of fonts or EPS-worthy outlines as specimens for illustrating The Type Heritage Project’s [THP] Textbook Series. The chart below is woefully in need of updating!

Even at high resolution, square pixels lack the muscle to display the curve subtleties of these tiny specimens. Rest assured that the fonts themselves are as good as it gets!

  • The search feature below displays only rows containing keywords that YOU enter.
  • Additional information (forum topic, etc.), if any, is linked to specimen thumbnails.
  • Click the column heading to sort by Tradename, Partner, Status, Date or Priority.
