The American Line Leaders shown herewith
are the only correctly proportioned and accurately
cut Leaders ever designed and cast. These have
been cut in five distinct series, with a uniformity
and harmony in the grading of the different sizes
which will be appreciated by discriminating
printers. This perfection has been attained only
through the use of newly invented tools belonging
exclusively to the American Type Founders Com-
pany. On this page is an impression of each size
of the five styles.
These Leaders are cast from Copper Alloy
type metal, which excels all other makes in light-
ness and in wearing qualities. For the special
convenience of printers they are put up in job
fonts of three and five pounds and sold at regular
body type rates, the same as charged when order-
ed in bulk.
The American Line Leaders line accurately
with all American Line faces cast on larger or
smaller bodies by justification with Point Leads
and Slugs. A practical illustration is given on
the following page.
