- To all Monotype buffs out there! I've compiled a list of publications that relate to the Monotype keyboard and caster that might be interesting for you who operate US or UK Monotype machines. There might be more editions of the books I've listed, but there doesn't seem to be more *different* books - if you disregard from Monotype Corporation's type specimens, which I have done. If anyone of you find more *titles* than I have listed - please send me an e-mail. I want to keep this list as updated as possible. Enjoy - /M.
