This is a rare and beautiful font of the 72 point Tory Initials from American Type Founders. These were cast about 15 years ago at The Dale Guild on ATF equipment by a retired casterman from ATF.
Only a few of these have ever been inked, and just for the purpose of making a repro proof. They are in excellent condition. Shown is a page from the ATF specimen book so you can see what they look like when printed. This is the complete original font of 24 characters- no X or Z exist.Please have a look at my other listings for more type and letterpress related items.
