english numerals

24c9c626b0cb4cc187dc6ac82f79f3a9Old catalogs aren’ t just great sources for details about the past, but for fonts and approaches to type as well. What better place to find beautiful old numerals than a catalog page of tape measures. These look nicer than my modern plastic-coated one. One even has “Centimetres reverse”, which I think in this case is English for “on the other side”.

I really love the cream color of this old paper.
