This might be something like what you have in mind Tom. Here is a
reprinting of part of Hermann Hesse's "The Brothers Karamazoff" (or
"The Downfall of Europe, Ideas while Reading Dostoevsky.") The other
day the image on the web page was not broken and you could see that
the book appeared to be printed as a display of calligraphy.
I've got a new translation of Hesse's "The Brothers Karamazoff" (noted
by Eliot in his TWL) but I may order this to be able to put the entire
essay on my web site. The Hudson (psuedonym) translation was
originally printed in the August 1922 issue of the Dial so it has
entered the public domain in the U.S.
OCR software could have a lot of problems with the typeface
though. (Plus I still haven't gotten a scanner.)
