Printle: A Printing Word Game from Metal Type

Dave Hughes

View on eBay: 18 point American Text (ATF#567) Letterpress Type for printing*

The seller has several lots of type for sale. See their OTHER ITEMS*

Seller's description:

"American Text was designed by Morris F. Benton for ATF in 1932, as a modernized adaptation of the sort of face commonly called Old English. It seems to be constructed entirely of straight lines, with a very angular appearance. It has had some popularity in advertising, as well as stationery."

NOTE: This face is complete with uppers, lowers, numbers, symbols, and punctuation. See specimen pictured.

* Mac McGrew, "American Typefaces of the Twentieth Century", Second Revised Edition, p. 13.
