Empty Plantinian Upper Case


This Belgian typecase configuration matches the (undated) Plantinian old pattern divided lay, as drawn by Wortman, in Gaskell: The Lay of the Case, in Bowers: Studies in Bibliography vol 22 (1969). The companion Lower case is Plantin Lower.

Note that there are only 6 rows of boxes, unlike U.K. and U.S. cases, which have 7 rows. Small caps go top left, accents top right, caps bottom left, ligatures bottom right.
