There are three different categories for this week’s word-of-the-week.
Bastard: “Of type, a character that is foreign to the font in which it is set (such as a gliph used from a different font set.) Also, in mechanical typography, a character that is smaller or larger than the body upon which it was cast.” (Example: Bastard.)
Bastard: “Generally, any nonstandard size of sheets of paper. Also, specifically an obsolete paper size of 33 x 20 inches.”
Bastard: “Any aberration or abnormal element in the printing process.”My advice for you this week is to watch out for Bastards. They can cause trouble.
