Wood type for sale in the Letterpress Daily Store.
The Poster Gothic Series, as manufactured by Hamilton Manufacturing Company, was cut in multiple widths in solid face and outline – like the Republic Gothic Series posted on 02/19/10 – allowing for two-color (or three, depending on the transparency of the inks) work.
6 line Poster Gothic No. 738 – Class R
This 4 is from a caps and figures font of side grain wood type. The face was identified with the help of Nick Sherman’s Flickr set Type specimen books at Hamilton (thanks Nick, that’s a valuable resource!). I wish I also had the solid No. 737 – Class N.
