Printle: A Printing Word Game from Metal Type

Tom B

Having spent some time trying to identify some of the faces that have been produced for identification purposes it occurs to me that one of my problems is that the photographs are upside down.
I would suggest that if I want to identify a particular font then I would prefer to look at it as if I am holding it in my stick or working on the stone.
Perhaps it would aid identification if the complete font was shewn where possible.
For that matter a proof from the type might help.
Just a thought.
