In 1990, after years of preparations, the Dutch Type Library started supplying exclusive digital typefaces. The company has since grown into the largest of its kind in the Netherlands. Attention is focused primarily on contemporary designs, but dtl also revives valuable historical type designs.
The Dutch Type Library feels bound to the rich typographic tradition of the Netherlands:

dtl’s exquisite collection of digital fonts can be compared with the very best that the famous type foundries have produced in the past.
Since the second half of the 1990s, the Dutch Type Library together with the programmers of urw Type Foundry developes proprietary software for the professional fontproduction. These tools are avaliable for macOS, Windows and Linux.

The texts on this website are typeset in web-optimized versions of dtl Argo and dtl Antares.
The applied css code is supported by the latest browsers from Mozilla, Google, Apple, and Microsoft.
The perfectly crafted dtl typefaces appear as harmonically and rhythmically strong on screen as they do
in print. Of course, the dtl webfonts make typographic refinements on the internet possible, such as the application of old-style figures and small caps. More information on dtl webfonts.

Font Tools

Font production is a complex process that requires full control of the technology involved. Since the end of the 1990s the Dutch Type library and urw Type Foundry GmbH –font-technology pioneer since the early 1970s– jointly develop tools for the professional font production. The history of these tools goes all the way back to the ikarus system from more than 40 years ago. From the beginning of this development on, the goal has always been to make batch processing of font data as easy as possible.
In 2001 the dtl FontMaster (fm) suite was released after years of preparations. It was the first font tool on the market that made automatic subsetting of OpenType Layout features possible. FoundryMaster (fm2) is the new advanced successor for macOS, Windows, and Linux of the fm suite. The current flagship of the dtl/urw font tools is without any doubt OTMaster (otm), which is a highly sophisticated application for editing and altering OpenType and TrueType fonts.
