Look for these Inline Stars in four sizes soon from Moore Wood Type.
Get your credit cards ready folks. These beautiful, outstandingly crafted “Line Ornaments,” based on Wm. H. Page’s No. 404 Space Ornament, are coming soon to the Moore Wood Type Shop.
Scott Moore, proprietor of Moore Wood Type, and his daughter, Erin Beckloff of Inky Winke Press, collaborated on printing specimen cards to showcase the stars, circles, diamonds, and catchphrases MWT is producing. Wayzgoose attendees received one of five designs in their swag bags. I collected a full set of the cards – easily among my favorite ephemera from the Wayzgoose – as well as some samples of the end grain blocks Scott is cutting.
This beautiful AND catchword (Morgans 316), updated from the 1890 Morgans & Wilcox Wood Type Catalog, is among the first MWT offerings. Visit MooreWoodType.com for Moore details.
A few weeks ago I made contact with Scott Moore, founder of Moore Wood Type. Scott has been making research trips to the Hamilton Wood Type and Printing Museum and putting his knowledge and experience as an Industrial Arts teacher to good use in constructing a wood type cutting pantograph. And he’s putting his pantograph to damn good use in cutting some damn fine type, like the gorgeous 10 line catchword No. 5 that is now a part of the Letterpress Daily family.
Look for available type, catchwords, ornaments, and pricing in May. Visit Moore Wood Type for more information.
