Railroad Gothic’s design varies greatly across the sizes. For example, the 42pt cut has an S that is much wider, while the bar of its A is lower than in some other sizes. In the smaller size used on the cover, T is too wide, certainly when seen next to the dense O or H. The authors’ names are shown in News Gothic, rotated. The synopsis on the back cover appears to be set in News Gothic Condensed, with the bolderAlternate Gothic for emphasis.
Chess Traps, Pitfalls, and Swindles is a rich storehouse of Chess ‘crimes.’ Sometimes the villain is thwarted: more often he gets away with his nefarious deeds. But, in either event, the tales, and their telling, will prove to be instructive and vastly entertaining.
