This is NEW-OLD-STOCK hard foundry-cast type for letterpress printing or hot-stamping. ID: The font is ATF NEW-OLD-STOCK; 08 pt CENTURY SCHOOLBOOK; in Wraps. 2 caps, 2 lower-case & 2 figures.You will find points in each of the pkgs.. I will be listing some NOS ATF types in original wraps over the coming months.
Some seals are opened, some intact. Were opened perhaps to ID the face or size, by previous owner. Sometimes the former owner/printer (a small job printer) pulled a few sorts to complete a job, which is much faster than proofing & distributing the complete contents of a pkg..
This was often done by job-printers whose margin of profit was very tight. May have some inked sorts or may lack a few pieces/sorts, but in no way alter the usefulness of the font. I will note what is missing as nearly as possible. If a font is lacking any sorts, price has been reduced accordingly.
This lot of ATF fonts in wraps has been kept dry over the years and has no oxidation. For HOT-STAMPING, it's the next best thing to the ATF/Kingsley zinc types. Will combine other fonts, as feasible, at no additional Domestic shpg.Sometimes I arrange terms for larger sales. + + + + + + + + + +. + + + + + + + + +. INFO: Most of what I list is not my own, it's listed for friends. That being said, I have more type than I can possible use at my press and I still have a remnant of types, ornaments & borders from my many years of working together with Theo Rehak at his Dale Guild Tpfy; I also have a few new types yet to be fonted as well as a few book-fonts for sale.
I sell old and new types, type-founders' artifacts, type-cabinets & cases, strip material including new brass rule & new 1/2 pt. Copper for ledding or spaces and other letterpress things from my shop. Aside from type, I list type specimens, private press books & ephemera, fine printing, books on printing, typography and wood engraving; DePol wood engravings [and a few DePol blocks], early printed leaves, books about books, books on illuminated manuscripts and facsimiles. I really do appreciate it.
