Lead Type
Had to follow up yesterday's pretty picture of rubber stamps with a few lovely pictures of lead and wood type. Which reminds me, my friend Kelly from Paper Stories is opening up a new letterpress studio and retail shop in Chicago and she is documenting the process over at Poppytalk Handmade. Her first post is all about moving the press - check it out. Look forward to watching the studio evolve Kelly!

These images are from here and here.

I love old type so much! There's a letterpress studio at school (I wish I could take a class, no room :( ) and I like to go in there and just look at all the lovely type.
