48pt Floriated Caps ready to be founted up. Anyone who’s not yet ordered one, they’ll be up in the online shop soon. CSS is kicking my arse on that, but I’ll get there soon.

Bitten the bullet and bought a decent supply of oil-based ink. If this works out well, then I’ll have to get the rest of the base colours for a ludicrous upcoming project. Stay tuned for more pedantic and niche details…

Lovely 72pt Centaur on the caster today. Smallest fount is still fairly massive- 1/8 fount (5A 9a etc) comes to about £400 – so drop me a line if you’d like some. The matrices have to go back soon, so time is short.

Only a week now until the Whittington Press Open Day, and my annual pilgrimage down from the Frozen North. • This year, as well as printing a poster on the proofing press, I’ve engraved a celebratory 36pt matrix for the day- John and Neil have been casting a little stock of them, and I believe you’ll be able to get a poster and a piece of type when you come. So come!

If you’re interested in a fount of Perpetua, here’s a proof of the quarter fount (10A 18a). Note the two variants of the upper case U, which are nice. After the casting, they’ll be £140 plus shipping, but for now you can get one for £120. Shipping is probably about £5-£10, depending on where you are, insurance etc. Happy to ship overseas.

Casting some founts of 24pt Perpetual over the next few days. Drop me a line if you’d like some- I’ll probably cast a few weak founts as stock, but I don’t think I’ll be casting too much more in the near future.

Successful drying rack. Bit rough and ready, but happily doing the job on the frightening, black-plastic-clad ceiling.
