New Type from the USA

The postman has just arrived with a heavy parcel from America, containing some more ‘Cloister Initials’ that have recently been cast by Typefoundry P22. The matrix must have been from the sale of America Type Founders, back in the 1990s.

Although the type is not ‘founders’ type and not as hard as the original from ATF would have been, it will print as well, provided it is carefully handled and not too much pressure is applied to the forme. I look forward to using this brand new type, that as the photos show, has been cast so well.
