DCBA is a contemporary take on the traditional type specimen sheet – a printed document detailing a complete typeface. These were generally used by designers and typographers to examine how a font behaves on the printed page. This example depicts an antique 16 line (192 point / 2.6”) bold condensed font.
The overprinted inks reveal interesting variations in colour and density, whilst alluring textures are achieved from the ribbed, laid paper.
