You can find archaeology in the dictionary.

Ugh. Teaches me to rely on spell check. Thanks for that.

This is from the dictionary on my Mac.

My old "Webster's New Collegiate Dictionary" agrees. The OED online however does not find "archeology".

Holy shit! Someone invented finding old type and lettering specimens and using them for reference! MY **** MIND IS BLOWN!

Wow, really. Nothing's new James, we all know this. Just having fun, sharing my process. Shocked to get such instant negativity. This is more illustration than a proper typographic character study. Obviously.

Just the English 25 uppercase letters for each, sometimes with punctuation? Useless to me.
