From: Mergenthaler Linotype Company. Linotype Faces. [Colloquially known as "Big Red"] NY: Mergenthaler Linotype Company, n.d. [late 1930s]: 1116. This book was published in the United States before 1978 without copyright notice, and thus passed into the public domain upon publication. Scanned by the author from the original.

This cut depicts the printers' ornament traditionally (if illogically, to a boxer) known as a "fist." This particular fist is a 36 pt. one, from Linotype matrix font 3 [triangle] 400.
