Miller is a 'Scotch Roman/ a style that had its beginnings in the
foundries of Alexander Wilson in Glasgow and William Miller in
Edinburgh between about 1810 and 1820. It is considered that the
punchcurter Richard Austin was responsible for the types of both
Scottish foundries—they are certainly difficult to tell apart. 14-pt.
In 1839 the Dickinson foundry of Boston imported types from Scotland that
became extremely popular in the United States (where the 'Scotch' name was
first used). Given its former success and its sturdy legibility it's perhaps odd
that so few contemporary versions of Scotch Roman have been made. Miller
is a revival of the style, but is not based on any one historical model. 12-pt.
