As a scribal typeface with vestiges of blackletter (see for example H and N with their minuscule construction), Rustikalis doesn’t really lend itself to being used in capitals. And yet in five out of the nine examples documented on Fonts In Use so far, the designers specified all caps. So did Eastern Graphics of Binghamton when they provided the design for Cornell & Ithaca in Postcards … a history with recollections by Harvey N. Roehl. Chances are this was done to further dial up Rustikalis’s exoticness or, in this case, its quaint look. The chosen style is the light and wide Rustikalis Modernized Gothic, here used with an enlarged specimen of its big-headed ampersand.
