Publisher: Alter Littera
A comprehensive set of initials (usually referred to as Uncials, Lombardic Initials, or Lombards), frames and borders, adapted from American Type Founders (ATF) Company’s American Specimen Book of Type Styles, Jersey City, 1912 (pp. 944-5). The font contains over one hundred glyphs, including clean renditions of both “Missal Initials” (ascribed to Will Bradley and issued in 1904) and “Caxton Initials” (designed by Frederic W. Goudy in 1905), plus adaptations of “Department Store Initials” (frames and background for setting three-color framed Missal Initials) and “French Cast Squares” (square, lines and backgrounds for setting two-color borders). Suitable to accompany most Gothic (especially Textura and Rotunda) and many Roman typefaces, or to be displayed as drop caps or in full titles and headings.

Specimen, detailed character map, OpenType features, and font samples available at Alter Littera’s The Initials “ATF Missal Caxton” Font Page.
