Quote(Linotype) Georgian (1931-1932) goes back to 18th century type by Alexander Wilson in Scotland. It was probably never digitized. Berry, Johnson and Jaspert relate it to Stephenson Blake font, and write about it: A transitional roman dating from c. 1790, perhaps from the Fry Foundry, but its early history is obscure. The serif formation and differentiation of colour are approaching the modern face. The capitals, in larger sizes, are rather heavy. Descenders are short. The g has a curled ear. The italic supplied with Georgian seems to be an earlier design, a Fry copy of Caslon's italic. Cf. the slope of the A, the swash J and T. Linotype Georgian is similar to the Stephenson Blake design, but there are a number of small differences, e.g., the serif on the lower arc of the C and the straight serifs on the arms of the E.Early on in his career, he designed a number of decorative caps alphabets, including the art nouveau style Grange and Dorothy.
