Bevel Font History

Hey Guys,

I was wondering if anyone could help me. I am looking into the use of Bevel fonts (see example image below) and I am struggling to find a history of the font - where it came about/why it came about/any decent foundries that specialise in Beveled fonts.

If anyone knows anything about Bevel fonts i'd really appreciate it.


Belfast Grand Opera House signage type

Hello Typophiles,

Would you be able to deduce the family utilised in the signage creation for this fine building? I've exhasted my resources to no avail.

PS sorry about the picture quality - the building is undergoing maintenance work and this is the closest I could get to the signage!
