They were distributed in North America by Amsterdam Continental Types and Graphic Equipment Inc. in electrotype format, and later through VGC on strips of typositor film.” Digitized by ARTypes in c.2008 and, more successfully, by Canada Type in 2015, “manufactured […] from photocopied reproductions and digital photographic images of the master drawings, in consultation with Peter Enneson, longtime student of Henk Krijger’s life and work.”
