When it comes to fonts the most noticeable factors to me would be the width of the font, since it immediately sets the tone. Other aspects of the font affect the tone on a more subtle level such as the x-height and cap height. Scale also makes a major impact on the message of the type, making it seem louder or quieter. The piece I had the most interest in at the library was the collection of currencies from around the world. I’ve never really stopped to think about how different money was just a couple hundred years ago, things like bills for quarters and dimes seems like a foreign idea completely but were just used in America not too long ago. As far as the print on these bills the German examples look like they used the moveable type printing discussed in the Letter chapter. Some of the other types of bills looked like they used either Gothic or Egyptian font is my best guess.
