    Pocket Library PL37, 1957

    For this book cover, two very similar copperplate scripts have been paired: While the editor’s name is set in Bank Script, the rest is in Commercial Script. A possible reason is that maybe the latter was simply not available at a bigger size. Note that this is from the 1950s, when type was not as easily scalable as it is today. Also, the former has fancier capitals.
