Peluqueros y Estilistas
A very creative specimen of Tuscan lettering from an Alicante barbershop fa├žade. Although examples of this style date to much earlier periods, typefaces in this genre emerged in the early 19th century. Tuscans can be quite ornate, but are readily identifiable by their bifurcated serifs. If you can get your hands on a copy, check out Nineteenth Century Ornamented Typefaces by Nicolete Gray for more info.
