Call for entries for the Poster and Broadside exhibition of the Letterpress Guild of New England. Designed and printed by Michael Babcock, Interrobang Press Boston, using Ludwig & Mayer’s Permanent Headline in sizes from 72 to 20 pt. Note the shortened descenders whereby the caps can fill the entire body. 

Babcock: “When URW digitized the face, they didn’t account for that fact. And so “72pt” digital is around 30pt smaller than 72pt metal. Completely screwed up my digital layout until I accounted for, and adjusted for that reality.”
