MODERN IDEAS



Never before has such beautiful printing been done as is being turned out
at the present time. The every-day -work of the modern printer excells the
choicest products of a few years ago, and when an attempt is made now-a-days
to produce something extra fine the result is often nothing short of marvelous.
A truer conception of the artistic, and facilities greatly improved over those
at the printer's disposal in former years, are responsible for this satisfying
condition of things. Type faces are no longer noted chiefly for their freakish-
ness: on the contrary, designs of today are notable for genuine artistic excel-
lence, and they are of a nature, as a rule, that will always be used. Series shown
in our late specimens and in this Specimen Book serve admirably to show the
trend of modern ideas in type design.

One thing of decided value to the printer desirous of doing the best work in

the shortest possible time is Barnhart Bros. & Spindler's Point-lining system.
Nothing but ordinary leads or slugs are needed for the lining of Point-line faces
on different bodies: if the bodies agree in size the faces line naturally.

This lining system is a far reaching improvement, both in the matter of sav-
ing composition time and the improved appearance of the finished work. In
the matter of time on work in which rules are to be lined with type the saving
is especially noteworthy, as rules may be lined with any Point-line system
face as quickly as the same space could be filled with Quads.

In a word the improvement brought about by the adoption of our Point-
lining system enables the office having type so cast to make a fair profit at
prices which with less modern facilities would mean a loss.

It should be the aim of every printer to replace his present outfit of type
with Point-line faces as rapidly as possible. The saving in composition sure to
result will go far toward paying the cost of the change. We have considerably
more than 2,100 separate faces cast on the Point-lining system, to which addi-
tions are being made constantly. The variety is ample for every need, includ-

5 POINT OLD STYLE No. 59

THE matter of lining type is so important that every printer should he familiar with the details of our Point-Line,
Point-Set, Point-Body Lining System. This system saves the printer many a dollar in composition time, to say nothing
of the increased beauly of his work. Every printer has experienced trouble in bringing type on different bodies to line,
and in lining rule with type, and therefore knows the great loss of time unavoidable when lining type is not available.
Take a legal blank, for instance, in which words in larger type that begin paragraphs, as well as some others, must be
lined as near as may be with the letter selected for the body of the work, and in which two-point brass rule must be lined
with the type ; hours of valuable time must be spent by the compositor having only old-system material at his disposal,
because of the necessity of having to use paper and cardboard to bring about even a semblance of alignment between the
various faces and between type and rule. No printer worthy of the name will willingly send out slip-shod work ; hence
the time spent in lining different faces with each other and with rule is a matter of serious moment. All such expense is
unnecessary now, thanks to the Uniform- Line type, and the printer is enabled to pocket the money heretofore expended
for work of this kind. The Barnhart Bros. & Spindler Point-Line, Point-Set, Point-Body Lining System embodies the
fallowing well known and tried lines: Uniform- Line. The point line in each body to which the majority of faces are cast
All Roman and body faces are cast on this line, as well as the leaders, etc. This line is so placed that properly proportioned
descenders can be cast entirely upon the body, free of kerning, from smallest to largest size. All Uniform-Line cast faces
will line together body for body without justification ; and, by the use of point leads or slugs, one size body can be readily
made to line with all other sizes. In the majority of cases the difference in line between any two bodies is two points or
a multiple thereof. Text-Line. For such faces as Scripts, Texts, or the like, where a long descender is cut for
typographical effect, we have established a point line on each body always varying above the Uniform-Line two points or
a multiple thereof. Hence any Text-Line face can be made to line with any face cast on Uniform-Line or Cap- Line in
the same way that Uniform-Line faces on different bodies are brought to alignment, and the result is attained as easily.
Cap-Line. For Title, Two-Line, and other faces without lower case. All Cap-Line faces on the same bodies line with
each other at the bottom without justification. All Cap-Line faces from the smallest size to 36-point line with each other
at the bottom without any justification. All 42-point and larger Cap-Line faces line with each other without any justification.
All Cap- Line faces in bodies from the smallest to 36-point will line with 42-point and larger sizes by the use of a 2-point
lead. All Cap- Line faces, too, may be lined with any Uniform-Line or Text- Line face with ordinary point-lead justification,
the same as Uniform-Line faces on different bodies are lined together, and with no loss of time whatever. The thinking
printer upon reading the above can not but be convinced of the superior features offered in the Barnhart Bros. & Spindler
Point- Line, Point-Set, Point-Body Lining System. We claim that in inter-body lining combinations, the greatest use of
2-point lead is an important item to be considered. Deep cut matrices, which insure deep counters and shoulders, so
necessary for electrotyping, stereotyping, and good presswork, are used in the casting of all Uniform-Line system type.
