Our 2011 Letterpress Calendar is being typeset as I post this blog. This year we are delighted to feature Tilley’s wooden and metal type. With such a magnificent variety, the choosing of these large blocks was a thoroughly enjoyable experience . The typefaces date back well into the 19th century and some of them, judging by the layer of dust coating their surfaces, have not been on the press in years. We’ve tried to use as many as possible, sans serif and curly styles. It’s going to look great!
