 +[[c:​capitals|Capitals]] that are equal to two [[b:​body|bodies]] of any specific sized type. There are Two Line Pearl, Two Line Nonpareil, &c., increasing regularly to a [[t:​two-line-great-primer|Two Line Great Primer]]. They are used for lines in titles and jobs, being so cast that the face covers the whole of the square of the [[s:​shank|shank]]:​ they do not take so much room in depth as the regular capitals of the same sized face, and are more convenient where the [[m:​matter|matter]] is crowded; the face of the letter having also a stronger [[s:​stem|stem]],​ gives an additional variety in the effect. //See// [[f:​full-faced-letter|Full-faced Letter]]. ​
