Curious if anyone else has ever seen one ? I’ve had it for years, moving it off the wall. I googled the artist and came up with nothing. Appears to be a printed piece, 18x12”. I’ve always liked it for reference.

Interesting mix of upper and lower-case letters in his labeling. :)

It's not random. It appears to be very intentional. I'm seeing that "r" and "i" are always lower-case whereas all other characters are upper-case.

Hm.

He may have been a trained draftsman. The i is/was common in some fonts so that it never got confused with a 1 (one), and the r is quite legible. An ink R on drafting film/mylar/velum can get messy.
