Designed by George Battee and Miranda Roth, LTC Athena is a serif, show serif and art deco typeface published by P22 Type Foundry.

LTC Athena brings a somewhat "lost" hot-metal typeface back from obscurity into digital Opentype format. In the Fall of 2012, printing historian Rich Hopkins contacted P22 type foundry relating to some inked type drawings he had actually simply revealed from his acquisition of the Baltimore based "Baltotype" business some 20 years back. It is a rare face whose initial matrices were ruined and thought fully lost. The illustrations included a complete upper and lower case set plus characters and fundamental punctuation as well as alternate forms of some letters.

The style is a narrow deco flavored design from the 1950s with a curious avoidance of straight lines in the stems and primary strokes. The face has actually been expanded to over 340 characters by Miranda Roth and consists of ligatures and a full Pan-European character set. It is released through the Lanston department of P22 in factor to consider of its earlier incarnation as a metal typeface.
