We are guessing on the typeface sub number, we have MANY 12 point Light Copperplate Gothic typefaces available so look at our other listings to see the difference.
We are calling this set Number 5 but we may have it wrong, this 12 point typeface comes in four different faces so please ask questions, look at the photos, and review the other listings for this typeface. When I measure the typeface letters in this set, they appear to measure about at an 8pt, but the body is still 12pt. The majority of pieces in this set look completely unused.
Copperplate Gothic is a Frederic Goudy / ATF typeface from 1901. This typeface is intended for headings and accent words and not main body text.
This typeface is regularly used for business cards and stationery headings. Please see photos for type condition, these were all used previously so there may be flaws, ink or other imperfections. We will add a random number of spacers to make this set as square as possible. Please be aware that working with this many very tiny letters we can make mistakes, there may be a letter off here or there, but we are doing our best!
We will only be listing two sets for this font/type, be sure to look at ALL of the photos for the set information in each listing. All of the type in this listing comes from the printing press that was originally located at Redwood High School in Larkspur, California. We are unsure how many decades the high school had this press or the type, but we believe it dates back to the early 1900s. We are slowly separating out sets of type for sale. Please see photos for closer details and overall condition.
