A sampler of miscellaneous 19th-century style ornamented capitals. Most but not all letterforms have bi- or trifurcated serifs, all but ‘N’ have a solid SE shadow. Shown in Lettera 1 (1954), originally without credits. The 8th edition mentions it was “redesigned and completed” by Armin Haab. No historical source credited. Adopted by Photo-Lettering as Jester Ornamental [PLINC One Liner 1971].
Alphabet Fantasque in use
