Printle: A Printing Word Game from Metal Type

Bruce Anderton

Earlier today I was looking at my collection of Simoncini material (typeface catalogue, leaflets of faces taken over from Matra and Adler Traldi, etc), and they did offer some very fine types, plus lots of interesting typographical oddities.

I did purchase mats from them, but not as many as I would have liked to have done due to the high costs involved; however I did buy from a UK source an excellent fount of 12pt Aster with italic...and wished I had some of the other sizes too!
