Super R’s

Taken from Baseline, a magazine published by Esselte Letraset in the early 1990s. This from the 1990 edition (I think – can’t find a date). The first is a woodletter, so big that I can’t fit it all on the scanner (the magazine’s page size is 265mm by 355mm) and comes from c1865.

The next from Felice Feliciano of Verona, about 1460. Magnificent! Finally an old friend – Albertus.
