Nacional Typefoundry

Fundición Tipográfica Nacional or the Nacional Typefoundry was for many years the leading type foundry of Spain. It was founded in Madrid in 1915 and functioned there until bought out by Fundición Tipográfica Neufville of Barcelona in 1971. It employed prestigious designers like Carlos Winkow and Enric Crous-Vidal and was noted for its bold and striking art deco faces.
