  1. There are diagrams on the web giving technical names for the parts of letter forms, such as "counter," "ascender," "bulbous terminal," etc. Are there any similar diagrams for the parts of numbers? I'm specifically interested in 19th century type, but I assume the same names would apply. Thanks!

  3. I'm looking for the proper terminology for the style of all caps with the initial letter a number of font sizes larger. Sort of drop caps without the drop.

    Confusion with Terminology

    Usually, we refer to Typography as the art and technique of arranging type to make written language legible, readable, and appealing. Another definition by Gerrit Noordzji, he defines typography as “writing with prefabricated characters. Lettering being defined as “art of drawing/ illustrating letter, words, and phrases.” So when we talk about work like AIGA poster by Stefan Sagmeister what term would be the most suitable one to define it? Typography or Lettering?

    Terminology question about capital M's

    In some faces, the center strokes of the capital M touch down to the baseline, while others float above, either at the X height or some other position. Is there a term for this?
