Hi all,

 

I was wondered if someone have (or knows where I can get) a high resolution and quality image of this complete alphabet of shaded capital letters ?

 

I would use them for a work, but I could get only different few letters.

 

Many foundries of the year 1900 used to produce them under different names.

For e.g. the sample shown above is from Deberny & Peignot and is called ''Lettres ombrées''. The Dutch founders Joh. Enschedé & Sons

name them ''Fantaisie Kapitalen, N° 1274 Sabon'' (image below), they are very similar to the French foundry ones.

 

The image above is the biggest I could get and comes from the book ''New Vintage Type'' (which I recommend!)

from Gail Anderson and Steven Heller.

Found another one: AP Egiziano by the Font Bureau's (or so it says). Only uppercase is ombré/shaded.

Nice one ! Shapes have been made with feather tool instead of a vectorization of the original letters. It will fit for the project.

Thanks all
