Li Bai Broadside and galley of De Roos type

This Broadside contains Music type, Chinese type and Monotype Bembo cast at our foundry. It is a new translation paired with a Tang Lute Song transcribed by Laurence Pickens and published in Li Po & Tu Fu by Arthur Cooper, Penguin Books, 1973.

We will post our typelist here for visitors to download or view when we learn how to do that.

Also coming will be other images of Books and Broadsides which we print or publish.

I hope to start some discussions on the History of Type and in particular Punchcutting in the interest of preserving things we have learned over the last 30 years.
