Description

From the Charlie Broad matrix collection as recut by John Carroll, who cahooted with Charlie on type face revivals way before it was cool. Harlequin is said to date back to 1768 (McGrew) but we have no information on the original name or source of this face, nor exactly what characters were there. It is possible that there were figures or other points, or that some or all of the present points were added later by someone. Nor is there to be found a complete specimen by Charlie or any of the successive owners of this recut face and thus it’s not known if John made more than just these 32 mats.
