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.

A Victorian type which, like so many others, was originally offered without a lowercase.

As we do so often, we designed a matching lowercase for it.

We also added a shaded version of the caps, figures and points of our earlier Vanities font.
