We Have Type

Type Drawer

Marie, it turns out, has always wanted a type draw. I never knew that.

I worked with them all the time in middle school where we had manual — hand operated — offset presses. And we used the lead type to make molds for rubber stamps as well.

Well she found one in Valdemarsvik and we hung it in the living room. Then the hunt was on to find some type to display. Finding lead type for sale is not easy. I finally located a source in Colorado and populated the display before Sunday’s thank you coffee.
