Skeleton Antique is a slab serif wooden letterpress typeface designed by William Hamilton Page and first shown in his company's 1865 catalog. The face is nearly monoline in its stroke width and lacks the sweltering over-onamentation typical not only of Page's faces, but of those typical of the nineteenth century.
