    Seems as it would have been no other names, say, in the 1930's. A blackletter font designed by Rudolf Koch 'The Great' was imported to Britain right under the name Oxford. Nowadays, it's still a marvel. - No Past, no Future!

    Signed up just to say that this font is almost identical to Perpetua. Unless I'm missing something, this technically came first, or Photoshop is screwing up somehow, then this is a near-identical copy of Perpetua.

    @mikesuszek I updated the description, but Roger states "It is based on a printed specimen of hot metal
