    This test broadsheet was printed by the renowned Peter Fraterdeus in his fine establishment SlowPrint™. It was printed from photopolymer plates on a Vandercook 219 press. The text from The Four Books on Architecture by Andrea Palladio was typeset in English and Russian, using multiple optical sizes. Despite the fact that the typeface was still in beta version by then the sheet nicely illustrates how Neacademia’s ragged contours smooth out when printed.

    The photos of the photopolymer runs were made by Peter Fraterdeus and Sergei Egorov. See Flickr for more images.
