18 point Trocadero

Mac McGrew wrote that Trocadero is a recutting of Illinois Type Foundry’s Ornamented No. 25. This font of 18 point type was beautifully cast, packaged, and delivered to my door by the esteemed Schuyler Shipley, proprietor of Skyline Type Foundry. What I didn’t know when I sent in my order is that the font came with four delicious ornaments (see detail 2 below).
