About this font family
In 1995, David Berlow was commissioned by Agfa (now Monotype Imaging) 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 sixteenth-century types. Throhand follows many of the museum’s specimens, including works by Garamond, Van Den Keere, and unknown cutters.
Among other uses, Throhand is recommended for Newspaper, Magazine, Book and Corporate use.
