Monotype Figure matrices held by the Alembic Press

The list below shows all the figure and fraction series available for casting at the Alembic Press, but note that it is not a full list of the more than 2500 Figure series produced by the Monotype Corporation in England. Where the figures are designed to match a particular typeface, this is shown, and the second part of the list shows all the type series that the Press has, that have figures within their fount. Figures are 0 to 9, but one or two of the sizes for a particular serial may be incomplete, as shown below. Fractions can be halves, quarters, thirds, fifths, sixths, ninths, tenths, twelfths, sixteenths, thirtyseconds, sixtyfourths, etc. but for coding reasons, the actual fractions (and figures) are not shown below, but are in the Alembic Press's forthcoming Figure Specimen, which also shows the unit widths. Unusual fractions are F47/8: 1/1 1/0, F47/9: 3/2, F47/10: 1/1, F47/11: 5/4, F51/8: 1/20, F53/8: 1/40, F147/8: 1/20 1/30 1/50 1/60 1/80 1/100.
