Hot on the heels of adding
the Chank typeface collection to Fonts.com — the site for previewing, buying, and downloading fonts —
Agfa Monotype Corp. is now shipping the new Monotype Library of 1,352 fonts.
The collection features over 300 new designs including Linex Sans, Haarlemmer, Mundo Sans, and Scene. The Linex family has calligraphic overtones, and Haarlemmer is a recreation of Jan Van Krimpen’s serif text family originally drawn in the 1930s but never produced due to World War II. The Mundo Sans family contains 14 fonts ranging from very light to extremely heavy in weight. Scene is a sans serif text face, while Lester was created particularly for designers working in corporate identity and other areas of design.
Also included in the Monotype Library are familiar (type) faces such as Gill Sans, Times New Roman, and Rotis. All fonts in the Monotype Library are available for both Mac and Windows systems, and each typeface includes the euro currency symbol.
The library costs US$4,499. Updates from the Monotype Classics 10.0 Library is $999.
