Monotype Metal Type Faces

as summarised in the Specimen Book of Monotype Printing Types, 1970
published by The Monotype Corporation, London. Supplemented by information in earlier specimen sheets, and various editions of the Monotype Book of Information, and lists held by the Type Archive, London.

There is a numeric order version of this list, if preferred. That list also includes the L series, and unit arrangement numbers, some designers, dates of introduction, etc.

Non-Latin faces are included in the alphabetic list below under the generic heading for the language, ie Amharic, Arabic, Armenian, Bengali, Burmese, Coptic, Cyrillic, Devanagari, Fraktur, Gaelic, Georgian, Glagolitic, Greek, Gujerathi, Gurmukhi, Hebrew, Kannada, Malayalam, Old Bulgarian, Oriya, Sinhalese, Syriac, Tamil, Telugu, Thai, Urdu.

If a face was withdrawn by Monotype, this is shown in the comment column, and is normally the date the matrices were scrapped. Some faces were re-named by Monotype, or are sometimes shown in a different order, eg Plate Gothic is sometimes called Gothic Plate, and eventually became re-named as Spartan. The different names are listed here, with the modern name shown as a comment, eg see Spartan. There is then a separate entry under the modern name, which shows if the face was subsequently withdrawn. For some time, families of faces were distinguished by a No. and this is shown as part of the name of the face, although the practice was discontinued by 1970.

Note that the Monotype Corporation/Monotype International in the U.K. used different names and series numbers from those used by Lanston Monotype in the U.S.A. and therefore the names and numbers in these lists are not the same as in the U.S. It should not be assumed that a face shown here as, for example, Caslon will be the same design as a similarly named U.S. face.
