painted drawings and Stempel proofs. P22 Zebra Wedge resembles the final
released version, while Zebra Stencil is based on an original trial variation
of the font. can be set in two separate colors and overlaid
to achieve the original effect of Hoefer’s first painted letter samples.

B, and C can be combined in curious ways, but that is up to the end user.
