    From The Art of Ian Bow, 1954, a book of paintings by my grandmother’s Australian cousin.

    Typeset in William Addison Dwiggins’s Metro typeface with its original forms (such as double-story lowercase ‘a’ and ‘g’). Metro Nova is a digital version that revives these forms.

    The headline is set in Tempo.
