Last weekend, at the Hamilton Wood Type & Printing Museum Wayzgoose, I had the long awaited pleasure of meeting Bill Jones, of Virgin Wood Type fame, in person. Bill and his wife Geri McCormick are good people doing great things for the wood type and letterpress printing community.

Visit the Virgin Wood Type website to get your very own font of Mansard Extra Bold, or any of the other 20 plus faces Bill is cutting in high quality, end grain maple, using a combination of traditional and contemporary tools and techniques.

Bill Jones at Virgin Wood Type is producing new end grain fonts of Mansard Extra Bold, caps and figures in 6, 8, 10, and 12 line.
Nothing like spending a few hours in the studio on a holiday weekend proofing some brand new wood type.
