Walk Like an Egyptian

20 line Tuscan Egyptian

Tuscan Egyptian is one of many Ornamented Egyptians that began to appear in all the wood type manufacturer’s specimen books in the 1870s. Rob Roy Kelly described Tuscan Egyptian as essentially a French Antique, with added points at the median and bifurcated serifs. Each of the capital A’s in this font bears the circular Hamilton Mfg. Co. imprint that was used between 1889–1891.
