The Specimen of Bembo

“I am interested in the physical limitations of cast type and letterpress printing. I cast an entire case of 14 pt. Bembo type, and then set the type, letter by letter, on the bed of the press. To my surprise, the bed exactly accommodated the entire case of type. This print is a specimen sheet of the of hand-set type.”

Congratulations to our winners! We will be in touch today to let you know how to claim your prizes.
