WOOD TYPE OF THE ANGELICA PRESS
Limited to 200 numbered copies printed by hand on Tweedweave and Ragston paper. The first section contains a history of printing with wood type by Dennis Grastorf including comments on the wood used. The other three sections are demonstrations of the use of wood type with the fourth section also containing practical information on the method of printing using wood type. The section showing wood type for the printing of posters is especially effective. An excellent production. Presentation from Grasdorf on colophon page. Box rubbed along edges.
