Display sizes of the typeface “Nelson Telugu”, from the Nelson Type Foundry Private Ltd., Madras.
A lot of strange things happening here! Check out the loops! Notice also how visible the construction of the typeface is – with the thin white hairlines showing where the top vowel marks have been placed above the base character – and the straight top of the “tick mark” shapes.
From the University of Reading collections.
(I believe this was printed in the early 70s, still searching for the date)
