Woodtype off the rack…
This week I was working on my
‹woodtype production› project again. After several tests with different materials and production methods, I produced 3 sets of woodtype. Two of them in the size of 20cicero, one in the size of 24 cicero.
I still have to trim them down to the exact width of the letter and get them a linseed-oil treatment before they are ready to print. Although only one of these sets is gonna be mine I can't wait to print them...

«I am very impressed with your type. I have been following your commentary,
as well as that from Endgrain and have jumped in to make some plexiglass
laser cut type. The letters are then mounted on to side grain pine. So far
my trials have resulted in clean prints and they ink up and clean up really
well. This is a great way to add extra fonts, and being able to use any
digital font is a great bonus. The only trouble I have had is with fonts
like Bifur, which needs a bit of work to alter the digital file for the
laser cutter to clean out the counters.
Keep up the great work - I love the total involvement approach to your
