Chromatic type was introduced in the Victorian era by William H Page a type designer from Connecticut as a way to add a splash of colour to the letterpress process. It works by using two blocks with two colours of ink that create a third colour where the two overprint. This ampersand is based on Page's Ornate No. 2 typeface.
