Monotype Information

Monotype Unit Arrangement C

This table shows the unit width allocated to each character in a fount. One unit corresponds to 1/18 of the set width of the face. This arrangement is the U.S. standard Book based on the layout shown for example in A Composition Manual (PIA 1953) by Polk and Gage. It caters for 5 alphabets in a 15x15 matrix case arrangement, and is used by a large number of type faces.
