Wood Type

Below is a print from some old and worn wood type - I wanted a print of the font as it was so that I could get a good idea of the condition before making ready. There are a lot of dinks and scratches etc but  with a little work Im hoping it will be solid little font! After looking at the print im thinking it is a mixture of a 'condensed' and 'regular' font.....


  1. Beautiful type Simon. They look beautiful as they are. Good luck with sorting them out.

  2. Probably a mixture of 2 makers, the makers mark is usually stamped only on the letter A

  3. Thanks guys! Checked out the letter A's - definately two makers - but there seems to be a variation between the same maker as well. Have got research hat on....trawling the internet.
