Nicholas (Miklós) Tótfalusi Kis

Transylvanian protestant who, sent to Holland in the last quarter of the seventeenth century to learn printing, became one of the leading punchcutters of his time before returning to Transylvania to print bibles. His teacher, in Amsterdam around 1680, was Dirk Voskens.

His types, the original matrices for which were obtained by Stempel in 1919, were revived for hot metal as Janson by C.H. Griffith for Mergenthaler Linotype (1937), and as Janson and Ehrhardt (1937) from Monotype. Good digitizations exist of Monotype Ehrhardt, and Frutiger supervised Linotype’s 1985 digitization as Janson Text; Bitstream’s digitization is Kis.
