We spent the month of January laboring exclusively on our series of antique typecuts, and launched the new year with Collection No. 52, Animals. All told, the project amounted to six Collections. For February here’s Collection No. 53, Manmade Objects (mostly), with the eagerly-anticipated ham roast, gaucho hat, and charter oak which were leaked on the media. Includes a nice little acorn-style printing press. The remaining four Collections are Classical Designs; Humanoids; Odds & Ends; and Wings, Wheels, Rails & Sails. These will be released in coming months.
Meanwhile our attention has turned back to the perpetual task of restocking some of the many soldouts. Presently in progress are Latin Ornate, Arboret and (gasp!) Relievo; with Sans Light and Schoeffer Old Style in the queue.
The U.S. Postal Service did not fail to enact their annual January price increase. This will drive the knife a little deeper for our overseas customers, but we’re standing firm at $10.00 flat rate postage for any order shipped anywhere in the U.S.
Eighteen new listings were posted to The Junk Bin in January, including some very rare initials and fonts that didn’t last a day! Keep an eye out, we’ve got a warehouse full of the good, the bad and the ugly and are continuously posting more.
