Empty Vietnamese Upper Case


This caps case lay is the standard case shown in Vien-Hung's type specimen book c.1966, as illustrated in a booklet about the Vien-Hung Typefoundry, Saigon and published by The Hill & Dale Press in 1970. There are 120 boxes, to accommodate the various accented letters. The outside dimensions are 75x50cm.(The diagram is not quite correct, as the bottom right box should really be the same width as two of the small boxes above it, but has been shown slightly narrower for simplicity of html coding). There would also have been an equivalent lower case. The actual character lay is Vietnamese case.
