It wasn’t a light package the delivery man left at the front door. You would expect a big box of letterpress 5″ wood type to be on the heftier side. And it was. About a year ago I had already filled on drawer of the Hamilton Case with 18-Line All Caps Gothic Poster. Any day you can fill a drawer with wood type is a good day. Today is a better than average day because 3o-line Poster Gothic filled two drawers. I also spent some of the morning, while I waited for the Fedex truck, cleaning a drawer of 10-line De Vinne recently acquired at the San Jose Printer’s Fair. About half way there, and it’s cleaning up real nice.
