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 over-ornamentation typical of both Page's faces and of other nineteenth century letterpress types.
