Notes:

The Greek type designed for the Macmillan Company of England, by Mr. Selwyn Image, [Fig. 66], is of sufficient interest to be shown here, despite the fact that it is not strictly germane to our subject. In this face Mr. Image has returned to the more classic Greek form, although the result may at first glance seem illegible to the reader familiar with the more common cursive letters.” (p. 73)

I note that the book shows a Greek typeface designed by someone with an English name.

The first line shows the Greek alphabet: ΑΒΓΔΕΖΗΘΙΚΛΜΝΞΟΠΡΣΤΥΦΧΨΩ.
