P22 Tuscan Expanded is a digitization of the mid-19th Century Woodtype font “Antique Tuscan Expanded – Wells & Webb 1854”. Specimens of this font are rarely, if ever, seen with a lower case. It is noted in the book American Wood Type 1828-1900 by Rob Roy Kelly that the lower case is “missing”.
This version was digitized from a recently discovered full set including all lower case plus ff ligatures. One unique feature of this design is the heart shape formed in the V, X & Y.
