      This is one of the few uses of Motter Ombra featuring its lowercase. Most often, the typeface is used in all caps (and sometimes in all lowercase). Maybe this has to do with the “font format” of dry-transfer sheets? They sometimes included only one case, and even when both cases were provided on the same sheet, it took the user more effort to create mixed-case settings than when typing on a keyboard.
