Circular quadrats and curvelinear furniture

These are cast in various sizes, to enable the compositor to make curved lines of various kinds. The inner furniture has a convex surface, and the outer a concave surface. The type is placed between, and the angles outside may be filled up with type.

Examples of quadrat and furniture shapes
