Linda Cunningham's picture

Yeah, no kidding. I don't want all of it, but some of my fave faces would be great. ;-)

We had this one posted on BOOK_ARTS-L yesterday....

I have a copy of boxes of type that I never seem to use and would like to get some that I might rather have. If anyone would like to trade for these please e-mail me off list at trade at bookbinder.ca

The first is a box labeled "Western Type 928 Central and consists of percent signs, check boxes, slashes and cent and "@ signs in numerous sizes from about 24 point to 10 point as well as some fairly small round bullets, checks, numerical operators and asterisks.

The second was labeled when I bought it as " 20th Century Ultra Bd Cnd l/c 24 pt." There is also another word scribbled on the label that I think says "Detroit"

These can be viewed at http://adobe.kodakgallery.com/I.jsp?c=barpvxc3.bkpse50j&x=0&y=vc149w and clicking on the first photo

Regarding: Primus. I would like to know the designer of this type style and when the metal version was released. Was this style released through Amersterdam Continental sales agency? Western U.S. agent in the 1960s, John Meola. This style was available in phototype by Visual Graphics Corporation.
Am doing type research. Gary Barsch, 160 N. Prospect St., #7, Orange, CA 92869 or nbarsch@socal.rr.com
