While not explicitly a letterpress book, New Vintage Type has loads of excellent examples of the current design applications of wood type. The book is divided into sections, one for victorian ornamental type, one for the meaty wood types, “modern” art deco styles, and so on. I like that the book has a fair amount of information about each piece instead of just slapping huge images on the pages. The typefaces used are noted and in some cases the vintage pieces the designers used as inspiration are depicted.
