An example of the very popular “Egyptian” faces from the mid-19th century.
It is cast from matrices in the Charlie Broad collection. He called it Egyptian Shaded Extended, but you won’t find it in any old specimen books. In researching it, the trail ultimately led to Dan Solo, who in the late 20th century created popular optical fonts from a multitude of type faces old and new. The evidence indicates that these mats were cut from Solo’s face named Galena. A lowercase is shown for it, but those mats are no longer with the font, so we’re calling it Galena Title.
