About this font family
The 1923 Barnhart Brothers & Spindler specimen book called this typeface “Cardstyle”, and suggested its use at small sizes for business cards.
It also work quite well in large sizes when a warm, casual antique feeling is called for. Named for a river that flows through Washington, DC.
Both versions of the font include the 1252 Latin and 1250 CE character sets (with localization for Romanian and Moldovan).
