You know those pointy spurs or brackets that are usually seen on the sides of old Tuscan faces (see Thunderbird, Miss Scarlett, etc)? … Is there a technical term for those? I've looked through Rob Roy Kelly's book, but didn't find anything there.
Also, do side-brackets a Tuscan make? Or does there need to be at least some kind of stroke bifurcation or splaying? For instance, where do these land?:
Am I wasting my time trying to nail down concrete terminology for 19th-century ornamental typographic phenomena?
