The first volume in the Printer's Type Case series is the culmination of three years of research into the typography of the Civil War era, and features 60 of the most common fonts, ornaments, and borders used between the years 1850 and 1865.

Every character has been scanned from the pages of original books and documents printed between 1848 and 1867 gathered from museums, private collections, and the Library of Congress.

These fonts are ideal for museums, historical reenactors and living historians, graphic designers and all lovers of historical type.
