A curious face, this Zephyr—and the most recently-designed type we have ever produced at Skyline. It was cut into matrices by Ludlow in 1964. The back story is shown in Pic #2 above, here reproduced with permission from the American Typecasting Fellowship Newsletter No. 30.
We have been seeking Zephyr mats for many years! Finally found this set, through the courtesy and generosity of John Horn of Little Rock, Arkansas.
Re the font specimen: yes, figures 67890 are included, there just wasn’t room for them on the label. (We do actually get questions like that.)
