The Scangraphic Digital Type Collection, founded in 1980, is available now in all four font formats: Mac PostScript, PC PostScript, PC TrueType and OpenType. It currently consists of more than 1,000 different typefaces, among them well known families as Today Sans Serif by Volker Küster, and Zapf Renaissance Antiqua by Hermann Zapf.
The exclusive feature of this collection is that for more than 60 per cent of the typefaces two special versions are available. One version is drawn, spaced and kerned for textsetting (SB – Bodytype), the other for headlines (SH – Supertype). Scangraphic recommends 4.5 mm capital height (18 pt) as the largest size at which Bodytypes should be used — this should also be the smallest size for Supertype.
