Lanston Monotype Machine Company

Note: This Notebook covers Lanston Monotype Machine Company matrix and typographical topics insofar as they are concerned with composition (cellular) matrices and their types at least in part. In other words, if the document or subject covers just composition mats, or both composition and display, it's here. If it covers only display, it is not. For Lanston display matrix/type information, see ../../../ Noncomposing Typecasters -> Foundry Specimens & Typography -> Lanston Monotype Machine Company. (I've put it in with the typefoundries, even though Lanston was a matrix and composing machine maker, because people tend to think of type in terms of typeface first (ignoring type technologies.))

Typographical Education


But note that typography as a subject (sometimes with useful details of typefaces and ornaments used) appeared in other Lanston publications such as Monotype: A Journal of Composing Room Efficiency .
