Is that Times and Franklin Gothic as well on there?
Close! Century Expanded and Franklin Gothic.
Is there somethere that outlines the differences or history between Times and Century Expanded?
Looking my Encyclopedia of Typefaces, I would suggust it is actually Century Old Style – the Expanded italic is quite different.
No digital interpretation will be an exact match but Bitstream’s Century Expanded Bold Italic seems to fit.
I agree, so what is going on with this metal version?
Looks like the bold italic is missing from that book.
Thank you, Indra. That explains it. Often a conundrum what to show here when a “straight” digital revival isn’t available. I’ll change the tag.
