This entry is for Josef Týfa’s original design, drawn in 1959 in roman and italic styles. Winner in a design competition held to determine the best new Czechoslovak typeface for book composition. “Tyfa Roman was released in 1960 by Grafotechna in Prague for hot setting. Later on, Berthold produced letter matrices for Staromat devices, used for manual photosetting of display alphabets. In the eighties it was available on dry transfers of Transotype.” [Storm]
