New Rijksmuseum archive with high-res images, perfect for a lazy day.

Some people might know, most won't, but the website of the Rijksmuseum, the Netherlands had an overhaul. Most fancy about this is the overview of their archive, which includes a lot of high-resolution type and lettering material. It is a bit of a search, but there are some real gems to be found and is perfect for lazy browsing on a lazy sunday.

Next to this, I wonder if some people might know of the origin of this type:

It's used by Johannes Enschedé around 1760 as a companion sheet to an etching.

FontLab Proofing


Pretty basic question, but I couldn't find an answer. Here it is:

I'm expanding a typeface to include old style numerals and small capitals. I have a draft of all these glyphs drawn in FontLab. How would you go about proofing these? I see that you can print up glyph tables in FontLab, but I'm wondering if there is an effective way to create specimen sheets with all these new glyphs in the context of the larger typeface? Ideally, I'd like to print them out. Thank you,
