Comments on: What the Font — 1950s Nancy Drew Dedicated to the legacy of Edward Stratemeyer, author & founder of the Stratemeyer Syndicate Mon, 20 Aug 2018 05:38:39 +0000 hourly 1 By: Jack Hastings Mon, 20 Aug 2018 00:24:19 +0000 By sheer coincidence I had been researching alphabets and fonts over the past several weeks as I wished to accurately describe a portion of the endpapers of several series books. At the very least, I wanted to determine if the alphabet was Greek or Roman. As I was unable to identify the alphabet or the fort, I chose a different approach and described the letters and characters as decorative letters and symbols. I admit that I felt rather foolish when I realized that one of the characters was actually the symbol for pi. Perhaps, because I had been visiting so many alphabet and font sites my computer decided that I would be interested in your two recent postings relating to fonts that arrived in my mail box out of the blue. I am not sorry that I received these two blogs as I learned some bits of information that may be useful. Sincere regards, Jack
