This promotional keepsake published by the Toronto typesetting studio Cooper & Beatty* features a cover illustration and ornamental chapter headings set entirely in type.
Can anyone ID the ‘5’. I thought Monotype or SB Grotesques, but no.
* “Toronto based Cooper & Beatty, Limited was founded in 1921 by E. Cooper, L. Beatty and J.L. Pepper using the name Trade Composition Company. When Pepper left in 1926 the company was renamed to Cooper & Beatty. Until the Second World War it was essentially a trade typesetting company. In 1950 W.E. ‘Jack’ Trevett acquired the company. Trevett shifted the focus to graphic design, for which Cooper & Beatty became known as one of the leading companies in the field.” — Trent University
