SOME SHADED AND ORNAMENTAL LETTERS FOR OCCASIONAL USE
The designs shown in this folder have been selected from faces that were popular
fifty years ago because they have aroused interest among better printers for use
in occasional lines and for initials. With only one or two exceptions they are sup-
plied only in caps and figures. Lower case is available for Nos. 173, 244 and 245
shown on the last page. While in each case only the eight line size is shown, any
of the faces can be obtained in a wide range of sizes. The widths of other sizes
can be easily calculated because Wood Type always increases and decreases in
direct proportion in all dimensions. The eight line size shown is therefore twice as
wide and the stems are twice as heavy as in four line.
