^Emerald Gets
Complete Fall
Swank Type and
Makeup to Greet
Webfeet Sept. 1
It will be an entirely new
Emerald that greets Webfoot
^'readers on the first day of Sep
tember publication, with four
progressive changes in “dress”
promised by Editor Helen Angell.
1. Complete new head type of
the very new medium con
densed Bernhardt Gothic.
2. All new feature type of
Kaufman bold, a heavy modern
script type.
3. Tabloid size starting fall
4. New nameplate to harmon
ize with the modern type.
The Bernhardt Gothic type is
modern version of the old
tfptandby of printers, condensed to
fiuch a degree that it gives better
readability, neater appearance,
and greater facility in headline
writing than any of the other
Bernhardt productions. Italic
type has also been purchased in
this type face for page harmony.
In keeping with the modern ap
pearance of the page is the Kauf
man script, which offers sharp con- .
trast to the straight lines of the
Gothic type. It will be used for
feature headlines and editorial
page material.
The decision to use a tabloid,
or half-size, form for the Emerald
was made after a thorough in
vestigation of the tabloid versus
regular size problem had been
made by the publication’s edi
torial board, Miss Angell said.
The new nameplate has not yet
been chosen, but will be created
especially for the Emerald to fit
n with the new head types.
