“In 1995, David Berlow was commissioned by Agfa to design a typeface based on a research visit to the Museum Plantin-Moretus in Antwerp. Berlow designed this family, in a tight range of weights, to address the issue of modern versus letterpress printing techniques, with respect to 16th-century types. Throhand follows many of the museum’s specimens, including works by Garamond, Van Den Keere, and unknown cutters.” [Font Bureau, 1995]
Shown on Monotype retail sites as an ITC release, but the biography above indicates Agfa Compugraphic.
