is another coup for Downtown's sophisticated epicurean scene, with another big plus: a sizable parking lot.
Returning to Gill Sans, and particularly to the way that its champions described it, we may notice the praise for how the typeface is not such a "repudiation of the human animal." William Holman, for example, appreciated that Gill Sans "brought a warmth of grace and feeling to the rather cold industrial faces coming largely from the German type foundries." (50) Robert Harling, writing in 1948, commented that "[a] comparison of designs by Johnston, Erbar, Renner and Gill shows that Gill's is a more rational letter-form, set apart from the dehumanized, compasses-and-setsquare precision of the others." (51) The "t-square and compass" trope was used frequently in this period to dismiss the novel German designs based on the geometry underlying their construction.
Hollis observed that "it remains curious that the Modernists (Schwitters was an exception), particularly when many of them were drawing geometric letters, were not more inclined to the geometrical sansserif typefaces, such as Erbar and Futura, which came onto the market before the end of the 1930s." At mid-century, the modernists on the Swiss graphic design scene utilized grotesque fonts heavily: Akzidenz Grotesk for larger settings, such as posters and headings, and Monotype Grotesque for smaller settings, since it could be produced by the Monotype casters.
Among Loganiaceae, in Spigelia splendens the floral tube is slightly curved upwards (Erbar & Leins, 1999).
However, Asteraceae also have another, more conspicuous kind of monosymmetry, which has found much more attention: the pronouncedly onesided differentiation of the corolla forming the radiating part of flat inflorescences (Harris, 1995; Leins & Erbar, 2000; Anderberg et al., 2007; Jeffrey, 2007).
Lecythidaceae and some Theaceae are characterized by a large number of stamens (hundreds, in extreme cases) and a centrifugal stamen initiation pattern, combined with a ring primordium (Lecythidaceae: Hirmer, 1918; Leins, 1972; Endress, 1994; Tsou, 1994; Theaceae: Vishenskaya, 1980a, 1980b; Erbar
, 1986; Sugiyama, 1991; Tsou, 1998).
The morphological homology between nectar leaves and stamens has been traced back ontogenetically in a number of species of Ranunculaceae by Erbar
Despite the apparent simplicity of the primary capitulum as defined above, a great deal of morphological variation exists, almost all of which is exemplified by taxa in the Asteraceae (Leins & Erbar
