The alphabets are arranged according to type style. Plates 1–11 are Roman and include variations of Roman style. These are bold, straightforward alphabets, with serifs and graduated thick and thin strokes. Plates 12–65 are Antique, the most popular 19th-century letter form. These alphabets have highly decorative serifs with cut-outs, circles, angles, rectangles, and design variations. Plates 66–100 are Gothic―the most modern specimens, being sans serif. These fonts were mainly used on posters and were the springboard for 20th-century typographic designs.
