Available Ludlow Fonts

Available fonts are much reduced and the list will be updated at a later date

This is a list of the fonts that we have had available for the Ludlow Typograph or type caster or line caster.

These are all fonts on genuine Ludlow type matrixes (mats). We hand set the copy and cast onto slugs 22 and a half picas long onto a 12 point body. For fonts larger than 12 point the text hangs over the edge, leading is required to maintain correct line spacing. For sizes 36 points and larger it is prudent to support the overhang with leading of the correct height which we can supply. In exceptional cases we can switch to our 6 point mould for casting the smaller sizes but strongly encourage the use of the Intertype slugs for small body text.

You can download a printable table of rather dubious quality showing the Available Ludlow Fonts and sizes in PDF format.
