Empty Oxford University Press Lower Case


This typecase configuration matches the lay used by the Oxford University Press in 1934. Note that the fifth box from left in the top row is wide, unlike the normal English Lower (above the d box), where there are two narrow boxes. Also in the third row up from the bottom, the first box on the left is a single one, whereas the standard Lower has two small boxes. In the same row, the normal y and p boxes are made one box. The box differences in this row are the same pattern as shown by Smith's Alternative Lower, in 1755.

The OUP Upper Case is the standard Upper Case, and the lay for their type is OUP Lower, and OUP Upper.
