Aww, F

5 line Teutonic F

Clearly descended from the Gothics and Gothic (Concave) Tuscans – though more sophisticated than either, with its modulated strokes and flared semi-serifs – Teutonic was cut in wood first by William H. Page and shown in James Conner’s Sons Typographic Messenger, Vol.6 No.4 (October, 1871).¹

This F is one of ten characters in my woefully incomplete font. It was router cut into end grain blocks, but without an imprint discussion of place and date of manufacturer is speculative.
