ABOUT







Plate Gothic

Mac McGrew on this Copperplate Gothic style typeface published by BBS: Plate Gothic was advertised by BB&S as "new" in 1900, and other versions were added within several years. It is somewhat similar to Copperplate Gothic, but not as well proportioned, and has even tinier serifs. Some members of the Steelplate Gothic family (q.v.) of the same foundry have the same characteristics, and appear to be a rename or at least a replacement for members of this family. Note that the colon and semicolon are full cap height, which is very unusual. Plate Gothic is also Ludlow's name for Copperplate Gothic (q.v.).
