First shown in wood by Page as Arabesque in 1872 (renamed No. 618 by Hamilton in 1891). Another cut was shown by Morgans & Wilcox in 1884 (renamed No. 3189 by Hamilton in 1897).
In 2013, Terry Wüdenbachs made a digital interpretation. His HWT Arabesque is primarily based on proofs from an 8 line font in the collection of the Hamilton Wood Type and Printing Museum, with most of the lowercase sourced from a 6 line font from the collection at the WNY Book Arts Center. Other references were sourced from Page and Morgans & Wilcox specimen books found in the collection of the Cary Library at RIT, the Newberry Library in Chicago and the archive of the Hamilton Wood Type Museum.
