Hunting for a bloody italic comma, I was reminded of @thesalvagepress and the Nonesuch Press additions to Monotype Plantin 110. Pictures are Francis Meynell’s (I think) long ascenders and descenders added to the face (in 10pt, 11pt and some 8pt). Phil @pa.handandeye had something specific in mind when we got them (something for a FPBA fair, maybe?), but they haven’t seen much use since then.
