Paper Master Patterns (Duensing)

image link-topic-sf0.jpg

At present all I know is that Paul Hayden Duensing employed some variation of Goudy's method of paper "master patterns" in at least his cutting of his 24 point version of Belgian. [1] David W. Peat indicates that his method when working from historical sources was to make photographic enlargements to a size of 4 to 5 inches. Using these enlargements, he then cut, by hand, Master Patterns in binder's board.
