Empty Scottish Improved Double Case


This Scottish typecase configuration matches the Improved Double made by Miller & Richard and in use at the Alembic Press from 1974 to 2009, and at Glasgow Schoolof Art in 2005. The diagram is slightly distorted, in that the top row left and centre should be the same size as the small boxes in the row below, and the top two rows right should be slightly larger than shown, and all the rows beneath should be the same size. The overall pattern of row in the upper case (right hand) section is two small rows and four large rows (which hold the capitals). A possible lay is the Double of Glasgow School of Art. There are other patterns of improved case, with five rows, and five different rows. The unimproved Marr Double has seven rows, and the Miller & Richard has nine rows.
