Wood type archive

Accidental gorgeousness. The Web Museum of Wood Types has hundreds of samples of type blocks on their site, an online archive to preserve the art of this slice of design history. But when the photos of these little blocks are all put together, something new happens—the silvery remnants of ink, their graphic form... these could be posters just like this.

Shown are samples of "Antique" and "Gothic Condensed Light"
Web museum found on H&FJ News
