Palatino's sizes

Ulrich Stiehl compares the 48p and 36p metal versions of Palatino, as found in Kurt Weidemann's book Typos. Das grosse Buch der Druckschriften (1964, Ravensburg). For example, in 48p, the central strokes of the E and F and the bottoms of the p and q have serifs, but not so in the 36p versions. Explanation: Weidemann showed one version from before 1960, and another from after 1960, the year in which Zapf redesigned Palatino a bit.
