Skeleton Antique is a slab serif wooden letterpress typeface designed by William Hamilton Page[1] 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.

A virtual type revival was designed by Jordan Davies for Wooden Type Fonts in 2005.
