1722 Roman


1722 Roman



Enlarged from a miniature book printed by letterpress
in London in 1722, which was typeset in about 7 point ('minion').
The irregularities of contour are the result of a combination of
typefounding mis-alignment, uneven inking and coarse paper.
A companion italic is also available, as well as small capitals,
swash characters and period ornaments.
