You should be able to un-tape just the top cardboard so you can see the complete set without risking anything falling out or apart. Anything rearranged or changed is not eligible for return. SET #1 (Only set) : There are roughly 1110 letters/numbers/symbols in this set (in photos, please see letter chart for reference and example sheet of the type), not including 23 extra quads (various sizes) and bonus pieces (info below). This is the only set of this specific font/typeface of 24 point, we have no more of it. The top will be marked for easier opening.
OPEN WITH CAUTION or you will have a pile of type on your floor. BONUS PIECES : We found 19 pieces of Kaufmann Light 18 point (we do not have any more of this typeface), so we are including them with this set. Unfortunately, with this many cases to sort this will happen now and then so we will stick these bonus pieces in a similar set.See photos for details - these bonus pieces are at the VERY end of each block. SET SPECIFIC NOTE : The case containing this set was VERY dusty (not type lice but actual brown dust), but the majority of the pieces look barely used if at all. The #1 had 5 pieces in the slot, but they don't look like a #1 to me, it looks like someone took something from another set and placed it in this one. There may not be any true #1s for this set.
PLEASE review the photos so you can see this, I left the pieces as #1s as they came out of the case. 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! Wikipedia: Kaufmann is the name of a brush script typeface drawn in 1936 by Max R. Kaufmann for the American Type Founders (ATF).
The stroke weight is monotone. Uppercase characters are freely drawn, while lowercase letters are more regular in height and width, resembling cursive handwriting.
Lowercase characters are close fitting, resulting in the look of a connecting script. Kaufmann is a very popular font in neon signs.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. PLEASE ask questions - we are happy to provide additional information/photos upon request. Once an item is listed in our STORE, we will generally (but not always) entertain reasonable offers. We will list details as accurately as possible but things can be missed. All items are from a smoke free environment unless otherwise indicated.
