Question about Desdemona Solid typeface.

Hi all.

I was wondering if anyone here might know the answer to this question? Was Desdemona Solid ever released by Letraset as a rubdown sheet? And if so, what was the sheet number and about what year. Thank you for any assistance you might lend to the discussion.

I don't know if this is the original issue year, but Desdemona Solid shows up in the 1981 Letraset catalog as LG 601 to LG 604 (72, 60, 48 and 36 pt)...

Hi Oldnick.

Wow! That was quick. Thank you for your info. Do they show the entire font set ( as I recall, they probably do not). The original issue year is not all that important. I was hoping to find out a range of years that it was in their catalogs. Very, very helpful. Thank you again so much.

Desdemona Solid is in the 1986 Letraset Catalog (LG 601 to LG 604) Upper and lowercase plus numbers and basic punctuation as on standard rub down sheet is shown.

Thank you all for your help. Could anyone perhaps provide a decent quality scan so I can see the character set? I would appreciate it very much. Thanks again. I'm on the search for an old Letraset catalog from the late 1970's.
