Empty Devanagari "Upper" Case


This Indian configuration is one of the "Upper" case lays shown in The Sind National Type Foundry: Book of Type Faces (in 1999), which also gives the actual lay of the case, which is used for Devanagari. The case is sized 17 x 38 inches. It has ten rows of five boxes per bay, i.e. there are a total of 200 boxes, whereas the normal English Upper case has 98 boxes. There is a companion "Lower" case, with 139 boxes. The type lay is Indian.
