"20th Century Mortise Cuts"
These come from the ATF type specimen book, c. 1915. These are vectored at a fairly large size, mostly for editing which I do on FreeHand. Some of the editing I do involves adding crosshatch shading to the area which originally contained the mortise. This gives the effect of some of the postal designs of France or Germany of that time, where coloured numerics or figures appear in a shaded recess.
I'll be slowly adding more as time permits.
