layout series 2, Oldstyle
« on: November 30, 2018, 11:17:44 AM »
I found a few diecases with this faces

a) 2-10 in a 15*15 diecase
b) 2-10 in a 15*17 diecase
c) 2-11 in a 15*17 diecase
d) 2-12in a 15*17 diecase

sometimes the matrices have been damaged during the storage after the dismantling of the old workshop... Those can be replaced.

I have some spare matrices of 2-10 and 2-12, but this is not complete with all acented mats...

Is there somebody among us, able to provide with with a layout of diecases with this face ?

No idea what wedge was used either, not a big problem though, computerized casting allows us to use S5-wedges as an alternative.

Here http://alembicpress.co.uk/Typecaster/UA1.htm you have an unit arrangement for this typeface; one of matrix case arrangements uses the S5 wedge: http://alembicpress.co.uk/Layouts/olds15.jpg
