Intertype’s typeface and font catalogue – the ’Book of Intertype Faces’ shows the huge range of typefaces, fonts, sizes and weights that were available in the 1930s for the mechanical line-casting machines that were used by the newspaper industry, book publishers and jobbing printers. Intertype manufactured mechanical linecasting machines from 1910 to around 1970. Virtually almost all of Intertype’s typefaces were derivatives of, or supplied to them, by the Bauer Type Foundry. Typefaces designed, cut and casted at Intertype in this catalogue are for example: Vogue Series, Cairo, Ideal News.
