Some typographers claim that the first designs of Engravers MT came from America rather than from one of these European foundries: Stephenson Blake and Co., Bauer, or Schelter & Giesecke. It's difficult to be sure which design could be called the original, but this face, introduced in 1924, is Monotype's contender to that claim. The metal version was available in one size only: 6 points. Even so, the font's very thin hairlines printed clearly, a tribute to the engraver's art. If you use Engravers MT in small sizes, watch that your printer's resolution can similarly preserve the hairlines and sharpness most loved in the original design.
