Yes, P’s

3 line Gothic Extended

Weighing in at 3 picas tall and 6p8 (read 6 picas, 8 points) wide – over twice as wide as it is tall – this capital letter P comes from one of my favorite petite fonts. The excellent condition of the font belies its age. According to the imprint, shown stamped into the side of the capital A’s, this type was likely manufactured between 1867–1890.
