September 27


In the foyer at Hennegan they have three large, framed displays of old wood type. I love that stuff. Coincidentally, when I was at the last printer's in Dallas, my rep took me down into the now-abandoned letterpress department and let me pick out a few pieces of wood type from the ancient type trays. Here's what I got ... lucky me :-)

Wow! You are soooo lucky! I've been searching for old woodtype or metal type myself too. I love your drawing :)

Oh i love old letterpress cuts! I saw some of them at a shop before, they had a huge set of drawers filled with them. They never offered any to me :(

Oh yes, lucky you. They are lovely and you must have been so patient with the drawing.
