About This Website
There are many great type foundries around the world. It has been really difficult to keep up with the activities of every single one of them... so why not collect their information and make an online compendium? This is how we started this project.
Typecache.com is an online index for type foundries and font sellers, and showcases their collections of type. As typographic literacy grows, the site will hopefully be a useful resource for designers, art directors, and type enthusiasts. We will keep updating our list of foundries and posting typography-related information including new font releases on Facebook and Twitter. Please check them out as well.
