Printle: A Printing Word Game from Metal Type

With time on our hands, finally opened the package with 12 point Korinna with Italic.

Was amazed to find they were all new, the marks on the lugs are from the packaging.

Beautiful pink contrasting.

Love the sound of a new font going into magazine - looking forward to using soon.

Stay safe all, John

Dear @John Nixon, I'm trying to identify a matrix. These mats are also marked with pink.
Do you know if all Intertype mats had this same color? Or could be that other foundries also used pink?
One thing that is intringuing is the fact that the lateral codes are not similar to other Intertype mats (as far as I know). They are more like Linotype ones, even if they don't use the American nor the British codes (∆ and ◊)
If you can, please see photos here:,4565.0.html
kind regards,
