About M & H Type: The venerable firm of Mackenzie & Harris, established in 1915, is the oldest and largest type foundry in the United States. Also known as M & H Type, it offers for sale an extensive selection of fonts of type for hand-set composition. Special castings are possible for those wishing sorts or large quantities for handsetting, and full cases can be cast, instead of packaged fonts. M & H Type is associated with Arion Press, fine printers and publishers of deluxe limited-edition books, and the Grabhorn Institute, which sponsors educational and apprenticeship opportunities. All share the premises of a handsome 1928 industrial building in the Presidio national park of San Francisco.
