I just received my newest set of type in the mail, a set of Grecian style type that is over 4 inches tall! It’s missing a few letters, so I am going to try to find a comparable specimen and create plexi substitutes. I wish I could find the manufacturer’s mark, because the face is a little different than the specimens I’ve seen in American Wood Type. It’s got more contrast with the thick and thins in the stroke. The closest match I have found is this Grecian X condensed specimen made by Darius Wells and E.R. Webb.

I will post updates as I work to complete the font and do research as to who made the font and what it is.
