“Admittedly this is designed for reading on the printed page, not for the side of a building.”

Taking your example of Trajan, it’s actually *from* the side of a building originally :) It was digitised by Carol Twomby from the base of the Roman monument “Trajan’s column”. (I learned that from Spiekermann’s book “Stop Stealing Sheep & Find Out How Type Works” which, incidentally, I found to be excellent, despite some poor reviews on Amazon.)

Not sure what typeface was used for the Bath street names, though. The R looks like Didot, but I don’t think that’s it?

Gah, I'm hungry now and want designer pizza for lunch!
