About Amerbach 883 Font Family


Johann Amerbach was a very successful printer in the city of Basil, Switzerland. He maintained an extensive network of scholars and issued over a 100 works during his 35 years in the business. He is notable for printing works of the church fathers and also for spreading the use of Antiqua fonts in the German speaking lands. This font is not an Antiqua, but Johann Amerbach's font now cataloged as Veröffentlichungen der Gesellschaft für Typenkunde des 15. Jahrhunderts Typ.1:184G GfT883. This would fall into the rotunda subfamily.

About Proportional Lime

Proportional Lime Type Foundry is a second floor operation that is overrun with a bird, cats, and unpleasant levels of heat, some of which is generated by the obsolescent machinery, and the rest enforced by the laws of thermodynamics. The bird owns the cats. And the cats own the humans. However, even considering the aggressive nature of the bird's endless commentary, and the cat's intermittent proofreading sessions, work is still routinely accomplished, and the goal of creating historically influenced typefaces achieved. We at PLTF desire to create typefaces that accurately recreate the feel of the old printing technologies for use in the modern world and also to explore novel designs.
