I'm looking for a letterpress printer who can cast new Monotype fonts and has matrices for Van Dijck. I need to commission some proofs for my MFA thesis. Anyone got a lead? thanks!

I have a Swedish edition of De architectura by roman architect Vitruvius from 1989, set in Monotype Van Dijck 12/13 by Geuze & Co's Drukkerij in Dordrercht, the Netherlands.
I tried to google it but couldn't find a web page for the company. So either it's gone or some dutch friend here at Typophile could perhaps tell us if it's still around.

The book is/looks awesome.
