“Greek Faces” in Poliphilus? Not the worst solution when you want to say Greek without actually using the Ελληνικό αλφάβητο: Poliphilus is based on the type used by Aldus Manutius for printing the Hypnerotomachia Poliphili, a book that is “written in a bizarre Latinate Italian” and “full of words based on Latin and Greek roots.”
“American faces” in Jim Crow, of all faces? Ouch.
