Did The Stronghold Use the Ecofont in 1904?

I learned about the Ecofont at Friday's WGSN web seminar. By inserting blank circles into the text the free-to-use Ecofont helps save ink and money and aspires to help us be more green.

I could not help but notice how an old ink stamp print from The Stronghold uses similar blank spots. I doubt The Stronghold was thinking about sustainability in 1904 but whether the empty spots were employed to save ink or used as aesthetics is not certain. I vote the latter.

Hello!

I know that tis isn't exactly a comment, but I couldn't find your e-mail address, and I wanted to write and tell you about a new website for artists, musicians, fashion designers, and filmmakers: www.PutItOn.com. I've been using the site as an artist and have my work there, and am trying to support it because I believe in it. Basically, the site allows artists from all over the world to connect, display their portfolios, and sell their work (with NO commission taken!). The site gives artists a FREE gigabyte of space to showcase their portfolios, allows you to stream audio and video works, lets you create live personal broadcasts, and translates any writing into ten different languages. If you could take the time to visit the site, and if you like it too, let your readers know about it, and even sign up yourself or link to it on your site it would be greatly appreciated! We are trying to make a go of helping out artists everywhere and are trying to get the word out, so please help us out if you like the site after checking it out! Thank you!

All the best,
Sarah at PutItOn.com
