Our brass type is made to the most
rigorous standards from the same hard
brass used for our other tools. The body is
first machined to the exact point size and
then ground accurately to the type height.
The characters are deeply engraved using
special jigs to ensure perfect alignment
and excellent definition on most surfaces,
when used either by hand in a typeholder,
or in a blocking press.
Our range of faces have been gradually increased and now includes 60 styles, which are shown
on the following pages.
To conserve space we now show a complete alphabet of each face
followed by an example of each point size available, with the actual height shown in mms,
(larger or smaller point sizes are available in a limited number of styles, please enquire). The
names of some of the type faces have been ‘invented’ as they were reproduced from founders
cast brass type, the names of them long forgotten.
