      Ampersanden’s wooden poster cut (9 or 10 cicero) of Alarm is even cruder than the already quite coarse metal version that is depicted in the card index by Verein der Schriftgießereien [Hans Reichardt: Bleisatzschriften des 20. Jahrhunderts]. It is also more condensed.

      Another showing [Devroye] features narrow alternates for ‘S’ and ‘s’.
