Evolution of Type, Exhibit 14 & 20

Letters showing physical features

"Not all the letters shown here have been selected from the same sources; but where composite forms are given he (the author) has endeavored to bring them into exact harmony with the family into which they have been introduced. They serve also to trace the development of lettering, although there has been no intention of presenting the forms in exact chronological order. They indicate, further, how letters have been influenced by the tool used in producing them, and should suggest some of the endless variations which the craftsman may give without departing too far from traditional outlines."
