History of Lettering

Making metal type – a photomontage from 1992

These pages come from the Printing Historical Society Bulletin (32), summer 1992. The photos are a fine record of a craft, I suspect, all but gone. [Credit for the photos goes to Elli Hadjiloizi and Nick Howells.) If you like this you’ll love this previous post.
