This B is from the gothic set I got a few summers back. I haven’t cleaned it off properly because I like how the dried ink is streaked across the face. There is actually red ink in the tiny holes in the face of the wood. There are also some dark drip marks from some sloppy cleanup. The wood used on this font is very light and pale, I’m doing research as to what kind of wood it is. One thing I really like about this block is the slight irregularity in the counters from where they had to be hand finished. This block wasn’t heavily used, you can still see a hint of the natural wood color in the bottom counter.
