Here is a happy little couple. The uppercase letterform is so thick and boisterous, and the lowercase letter is much more subdued. The counter in the bowl of the lowercase letterform is positively gigantic compared to the squished in counter spaces on the uppercase B. You can see streaks of their yellowish faces from behind the grime.

    Crikey! Tell me Beth, Are these all yours? If they are, I’m am becoming very jealous (in a good way!) but also frustrated because I cannot see the impression – it would be great if you were to begin a new section just for the prints – I would love to see more of the set, and compare how they print – I’m sure you know what I mean about how wood type prints? I guess you do or you wouldn’t be doing this …

    If you are buying these – where from – wood type has become quite expensive in the UK – even on eBay – I would dearly like to have more, but often can’t afford to buy what I would like to have…

    Yours, very jealously,
