Background

Concave Tuscan was first shown as wood type under the name Gothic Tuscan by William H. Page in James Conner’s Sons Typographic Messenger (November, 1866). Almost all the major manufacturers of the 19th century offered a version of Gothic Tuscan.

WTR Concave Tuscan was drawn from 6-line (72 point) wood type. It is a display face, and is best used at larger sizes.
