After exploring through the different type houses and foundries, I have chosen to discuss one by the name of LINOTYPE. This is because, LINOTYPE happens to be one of the most well-known foundries and contains some of the most famous and commonly used fonts such as: Helvetica, Optima, Gil Sans, Papyrus, and Palatino. LINOTYPE was invented by a man by the name of Ottmar Mergenthaler who had also created a type setting machine in which you can use certain typefaces. This machine became very popular throughout the newspaper, book, and advertising industry and was used very commonly. Therefor, LINOTYPE became a famous, well-known, and frequently used foundry!
