Specimen: MacKellar, Smiths & Jordan Co. Philadelphia — 1892

con 7 commenti - leggili e lascia anche il tuo, grazie

Pochi mesi prima di incorporarsi nella nascente American Type Founders Company (ATF) la MacKellar, Smiths & Jordan Co. di Philadelphia stampa nel 1892 il Compact Book os Specimens chiamata la “Twentieth issue from our Foundry” (la ventesima edizione della nostra fonderia tipografica).

Tale ricco campionario di caratteri di ben 512 pagine è conosciutissimo da tutti gli stampatori americani. Esso presenta un ricchissimo assortimento di caratteri e ornamenti tutti prodotti dalla fonderia che, per la bellezza di stile, originalità, e la durata, non possono essere eccelsi. La portabilità del libro permetteva di essere spedito per posta alle tipografie in luoghi lontani che altrimenti non potevano essere comodamente raggiunte. La serie di caratteri plain e fantasia illustrati in questo libro sono impaginati e visualizzati sul vecchio standard dei corpi e nel sistema a punti.
