Ornamented types

01/12/2010

These illustrations are taken from the prospectus to a book by the same name published by I.M.Imprimit (run by Ian Mortimer) in 1990/1991. The type was taken from material held at the St Bride Printing Library in London, and attributed to a London typefounder of the 1820s called L.J.Pouchee. I was unable to purchase the volume at the time – it was priced at £1,080, pre-publication! I wonder what it is worth now.
