Paul Hayden Duensing (1950-2006) was a private typefounder and one of the founding members of the American Typecasting Fellowship. Duensing was an important part of the preservation of typefounding and matrix making in the late 20th century. His work is notable for its excellent scholarship. He cut matrix fonts, some in multiple sizes, for at least 14 typefaces. Several of these were his own designs. He also cut character sets to augment at least 10 series, as well as a number of border and ornamental matrices.
