Re: [BKARTS] typeface help for 18th Century Labels


I have the P&S Engraving Catalogue with its Supplement obtained in 
April 2004,  on p.S13 there are two fonts, one marked 18th Century the 
other 17th Century.  These look ideal and I have compared them to 
some of my old title labels.  You should be able to locate them on the 
P&S Web site.

You might perhaps get away with Gloucester, Cheltenham Old Style or 
Kent.  Unfortunately I don't know when these fonts were first
