New to Typophile? Accounts are free, and easy to set up.
I recently stumbled upon the Glasgow typeface:
I think it’s really neat, so I would like to find out where it originally comes from.
It’s sold by Elsner & Flake as part of their “Typeshop Collection”, which, as it seems, is the former Quick Brown Fox “Serials Typecollection”, which is the former Brendel & Pabst “Serial Type Collection”.
Softmaker sells it, too (as “Glasgow Serial”), as does Red Rooster in two versions (stating on MyFonts it originates from Quick Brown Fox).
While most Brendel & Pabst typefaces are modelled after typefaces from other foundries, I couldn’t find out anything about Glasgow. Could this be a Brendel & Pabst original?
I hope someone can shed light on this!
Thanks in advance — Joshua
