Here is a comprehensive and always up-to-date Specimen Book and Catalog of all type fonts and decorative material we have cast to date. It's presented in PDF format in three volumes, and these may be downloaded with one click on the icon at right, then viewed, saved, or printed out at your convenience.
The type illustrated and described has been cast and is available for purchase, except items noted as sold out. The image is from an actual letterpress proof (but of course, being digitally scanned, electronically processed, and displayed by glowing pixels, it does not perfectly represent the actual image quality). Fonts are put up in a deluxe storage box with specimen printed on the label, and securely shrink-wrapped.

What goes on inside a type foundry, anyway? It's not as simple as you might think. Actually casting the type is only one of 13 separate operations necessary to produce a finished font ready to go out the door. Here for your interest is a flow chart showing the process that takes place at Skyline to produce type for you.
