The Bruce Foundry in New York gave this Italian Clarendon the catchy name of Ornamented No. 1529.
The original had a top right white shadow which we eliminated. Additionally we improved the color of several of the characters.
A special effects font that forms headlines reversed on a background. Many different endpieces are furnished.
You may be familiar with a caps and small caps type called Cruickshank.
In Germany the same face was called Eureka.
We took the small caps, which are not so overblown as the caps, and designed a lowercase to harmonize with it.
No telling how old this font is, because it came from Hamilton, a firm that was late in the wood type business, but was the repository of many older patterns from earlier wood type makers.
Great circus look to it. Some missing characters drawn at Solotype.
Carl Schraubstadter of the Inland Type Foundry probably had more to do with the design of this italic than he did with the roman.
Great for Craftsman Era projects.
This circa 1910 European face was introduced into the United States by a German type foundry traveling salesman during the great depression of the 1930s.
We have used it quite successfuly in sizes as small as 10 and 12 point.
MacKeller, Smiths and Jordan had a font called Giraffe Wide which we liked, but like many Victorian display fonts it had no lowercase.
We fixed that!
