The company was one of the world's first type foundries to have no history in the production of metal type. It is now a wholly owned brand or subsidiary of Monotype Imaging. The company was founded to design, license and market typefaces for filmsetting and computer set types internationally.
The company issued both new designs and revivals of older or classic faces, invariably re-cut to be suitable for digital typesetting use and produced in families of different weights.
Although it is claimed that the designers took care to preserve the style and character of the original typefaces , several ITC revivals, such as ITC Bookman and ITC Garamond in particular, have received criticism that the end result was related in name only to the original faces. ITC's revival designs frequently followed a formulary of increased x-height , multiple weights from light to ultra bold, multiple widths and unusual ligature combinations, sometimes with alternate characters.
Critics sometimes [ citation needed ] complain that, while the dramatically higher x-height increased legibility in smaller point sizes, in normal text sizes the extreme height of the lowercase characters imparted a commercial, subjective voice to texts.
In recent years several new revivals have been praised for showing more historical accuracy, and for not increasing the x-height to the dramatic heights of earlier ITC typeface revivals. Because of its extraordinary blend of typographic design , illustration and cartoons sometimes by world-renowned artists and cartoonists such as Lou Myers , verse and prose extolling the virtues of well-designed type , as well as contributions by amateur or semi-professional typographers , the magazine was avidly read by type enthusiasts and sought after by collectors the world over.

Understanding The Difference Between Type And Lettering
Joseph Alessio is a lettering artist and designer from the Detroit area. We have seen a number of designers and artists make their careers out of designing type or custom lettering, and it has become common to list typography among our skills and disciplines. Unfortunately, as with any popularity surge, there have come with it a lot of misunderstandings of some of the terms and concepts that we use. Before you throw your pens and brushes at me in protest, please let me explain! Even though lettering and typography share many of the same concepts, and a good eye and understanding of one will enable you in the other as well, they are completely different disciplines. Typography is essentially the study of how letterforms interact on a surface, directly relating to how the type will be set when it eventually goes to press. It is related to typesetting and can include type design.

The use of initial caps—as well as lowercase letters and even complete words—has historically been a technique employed to create visual interest as well as assist with typographic hierarchy. Their use can also play a part in the development of a more balanced, and even exciting design. In the past, the usage and application of initials was governed by typesetting methods, specifically the limitations of metal type. An exception to this was illuminated manuscripts where initials and other decorations were often hand-drawn on the actual pages.
The font size is decisive for both legibility and text impact. But what exactly is the font size? Where is it measured and why are the letters of a Times typeface bigger than those of an English cursive font even though you have entered the same point value? The web abounds with font size guidelines for students and other target audiences.
Herbert F. He collaborated with Ralph Ginzburg on three of Ginzburg's magazines: Eros , Fact , and Avant Garde , and was responsible for the creative visual beauty of these publications. He designed a typeface, ITC Avant Garde , for the last of these; this font could be described as a reproduction of art-deco , and is seen in logos created in the s and s. Herb Lubalin entered Cooper Union at the age of seventeen, and quickly became entranced by the possibilities presented by typography as a communicative implement.
The publication featured often experimental typographic compositions juxtaposed with illustrations, cartoons, and imagery.
