Announcing VWT Aldine Expanded, Pt. 2

This nice little video – by Paul Dodd and Bill Jones, proprietor of Virgin Wood Type Mfg. Co. (VWT) – demonstrates how beautifully the 5 line trial cutting of Aldine Expanded prints. The first print shows Bill deflowering an entire character set – caps, figures, punctuation, and my newly designed arrow and star ornament – on a Vandercook 4. The second print shows a handful of characters from a vintage font of Aldine Expanded mixed in with the new. Note the enlarged counters of the vintage B, D, and P, and the shorter central arm of the 3. I’ve already ordered a complete 8 line character set, what are you waiting for?
