Dunlap Broadside - The purely typographic broadside that was distributed over 235 years ago, is the first version that actually spread the Declaration of Independence to the rest of the world.

Caslon Initials, from The manual of linotype typography prepared to aid users and producers of printing in securing greater unity and real beauty in the printed page. Typographical plan and critical comment by William Dana Orcutt, in co-operation with Edward E. Bartlett. Mergenthaler Linotype company in Brooklyn, N.Y., 1923

William Caslon's classic typeface has largely faded from the computer era, but it's still my favorite "display" face (that is, other than body text). It's beautifully rounded and full, and quite readable.
