Type Record is a platform for cataloging and researching analog and digital type. A record can represent an entire type series, a family, a style, or just one particular glyph (sort). These entries are structured in a range of specificity from generic Masters to specific Versionsfrom a manufacturer and even unique Instances housed in a certain collection.
While Type Record will be a public resource, the target user group is primarily historians, collectors, and researchers of type. It is a project led by Indra Kupferschmid with Nick Sherman and developer Chris Lewis, and is operated independently from any business or organization.
