An old wood type we picked up in London from the Fredrick Ullmer Company. It’s not marked, and we've never seen it in a catalog, so we don't know who made it.
We like it for antique-looking western posters and playbills. We added the lowercase. We have seen it used on British music hall bills.
This is a simplified Tuscan, free from excessive ruffles and flourishes.
Types of this general design began to appear in profusion in the 1830, and continued as a popular form until the end of the nineteenth century.
We added the lowercase to this one for increased usefulness.
This stylish lightface was designed by Bernd Nadall for Barnhart Bros. & Spindler as a caps-only font in 1895.
The lowercase was added at Solotype a hundred years later, resulting in a font quite at home in modern advertising.
