Dan X. Solo

The Solotype Archive was begun in 1942 when I was 14. I was a kid printer for several years before that. At 16, after a quick three months of training, I dropped out of school and went to work full time as a radio actor and announcer in San Francisco. (Easy to get jobs in those days, due to the war-induced manpower shortage.) In 1949 and 1950, I created a magic show which played West Coast theatres with some success. After that, back to broadcasting.

Originally issued as Palm from the A. D. Farmer Foundry in New York, about 1887.

This is a good early example of the transition from the ruffles and fluorishes of Victorian fonts to the more restrained decoration that came to be called Art Nouveau.

Our penchant for banner types lives on. This one is our take on an 1880s font called Mezzotint.

Banner fonts give the appearance of art work, without having to do any. We like that.
