We all know US phototype services like PLINC and Solotype, but what phototype services were available in other countries? I found a description of someone ordering phototype in the UK in the 1970's but I can't dig up any records of the existence of UK photptype services. The type that was ordered never appeared in any US phototype catalogs.
BTW, just got a set of “Text” books from Filmcomposition and they are very finely made relative to most phototype catalogs. Will be on my Flickr soon, but here’s a Georg Salden snippet.
