Buyers can view the complete library online. The ITC 1500 Library includes a blend of old and new typefaces, including ITC Avant Garde Gothic, ITC Franklin Gothic, ITC Berkeley Old Style, ITC Officina, ITC Conduit, ITC Tabula, ITC Oldrichium, ITC Batak, ITC Tickle, ITC Cinderella, and ITC Jeepers. The library will be available as a single CD-ROM of unlocked typefaces. The product includes licensing for 20 users and is available at an introductory price of $4,999 (around £3,200) through January 2003.
