Application filed March 19, 1902- Serial No. 99,027- Term of patent 14 years.
T0 at whom it nuty concern.-
Be it known that I, JosEPI-I W. PHINNEY, of Medford, in the countyof Middlesex and State of Massachusetts, have invented and produced a new and original Design for a Font of Border-Type, of which the following is a specification.
This font consists of border-type comprising characters designed to convey to the eye the effect of a couventionalized vine with leaves and flowers or buds, outlined both in solid and open lines, growing thereon.
The general characteristics of the type-faces belonging to the font comprise conventionalized leaves, each leaf having a general quadrilateral form, and conventionalized four-petaled flowers or buds having a fifth squarelycutprojeetionto indicate the stem,all asshown in the accompanying drawing. The leaves of each leaf character are arranged in pairs,
one opposite the other, with a space between to indicate conventionally the vine which covers one of the edges of one of each pair of leaves and from which the flowers and buds may spring, a portion of the characters being outlined in solid lines and a portion in open lines, the same characteristics, however, being carried through the entire font. The characters, as shown in the drawing, are seven in number, four being leaf characters and three being flower or bud characters.
\Vhat I claim as my invention is- The design for a font of border-type as here in shown and described.
In testimony whereof I hereunto set my name this 17th day of March, 1902.
