This is one of the first blocks I got when I started collecting wood type. It’s got a great color and texture, combined with a lovely typeface. I also love how you can clearly see the pantograph marks on this block. The more obvious marks at the bottom of the letterform was made with a larger pantograph bit, and the tighter details were taken care of with a smaller bit, then hand finished.

I haven’t found an exact typeface match for this block yet. It’s clearly a clarendon or a derivative of that, with its bracketed slab serifs.

Style: Clarendon (Unknown what specific style)
Style first appeared: Unknown
Size: 24 line
Manufacturer: Unknown
Manufacturing Method: Pantograph
Is it part of a complete set? No
