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.

Apparently original with the Lindsay brothers type foundry in New York shortly before they were merged into the American Type Founders Company.

A few characters of the original font have been modified slightly to make them more harmonious with the rest of the alphabet.

No telling how old this font is, because it came from Hamilton, a firm that was late in the wood type business, but was the repository of many older patterns from earlier wood type makers.

Great circus look to it. Some missing characters drawn at Solotype.
