Metal Type

By FotoDen  
While in London last week, I gravitated to Tom Davies's stand at Covent Gardens, and his display of gorgeous old wood and metal typefaces, that his father, a traditional typographer, had accumulated over the years. The above collection of metal type is a lovely type and abstract statement. As someone who was trained in design BC (Before Computers), I love the type displayed on Tom's stand. Seeing his collection reminded me of the two type cases sitting in my sister's basement in Canada. They will soon be rescued to Berlin to display my small collection of wood type.
