Evolution of Type, Exhibits 15, 18, 21

Letters showing anatomical features.

"Some of the examples presented in collections of alphabets give the form of the letters but wholly lose the feeling that is an essential quality. In this work, therefore, special pains have been taken to convey that feeling & to preserve the delicate irregularities - practically lost in most reproductions - which contribute so appreciably to the character of the page in mass. In type faces, it should be understood that the spirit of the letter has been sought, rather than absolute fidelity to precise form, though the drawing, of course, has been done very carefully."
