Printle: A Printing Word Game from Metal Type

Nick Gill

I work at Hand & Eye Letterpress in Whitechapel, running our Monotype composition and super casters. With the arrival of some new matrices, we think it's probably time to start offering founts of type properly.

To give you an (incomplete) idea of what we have, we can cast various sizes of Baskerville, Bembo, Bodoni, Bulmer, Caslon, Centaur, Clarendon, Ehrhardt, Fournier, Garamond, Gill Sans, Helvetica, Imprint, Joanna, Perpetua, Plantin, Sabon, Scotch Roman, Times New Roman, Walbaum, and various Grotesques.

Of course, we'll cast however much type anyone wants, but we intend to offer 1/4 strength founts (10A 18a) for £25 in composition sizes (up to 14pt). 

So, given the range of faces we have, would anyone here be interested in type at that price?

I did also notice that someone was asking about setting a book, way back in 2009- if anyone's looking for hot metal typesetters, that's something that we can certainly do.

Thanks for reading...
