I’m cur­rent­ly try­ing to build up a col­lec­tion of type which I would be using main­ly for poster work and larg­er scale print. If any­one can help, I am inter­est­ed in both met­al and wood­en types 48pt and above, full alpha­bets not essen­tial. I am also inter­est­ed in spac­ing in larg­er sizes.

Many thanks in advance. Lizzi

I’m sell­ing a Cooks Vic­tor, a top of the line table top press. Victor’s are known for its excep­tion­al strength and impres­sions it a big cut above the reg­u­lar C&P pilot press. It’s also one hand­some piece of print kit. I shipped this press in when I moved from the USA. Its rare in the USA and extreme­ly rare in the UK. Its a fan­tas­tic work­horse of a table top press that launched my busi­ness with ease and joy. It’s ful­ly refur­bished and good to go. Feel free to e-mail me if you have any Q’s and for images.

Gara­mond 156
An almost com­plete run from 8 to 72 point in 11 sizes. Total weight is, at a best guess, in the region of 400 kilos. Zone the whole, type has seen light or no use and so is gen­er­al­ly in great nick. I con­sid­ered sell­ing a few years back but decid­ed against and have rarely used since, I could do with some case space and so am look­ing for a buy­er open to sen­si­ble offers in the region of 3k.

Sor­ry, not inter­est­ed in split­ting up the run.

Roman — 8, 10, 12, 18, 24, 30, 36, 42, 48, 60, 72. 10pt = 4 cas­es, 12pt = 5 cas­es, 18pt = 4 cas­es. Small caps, 8, 10, 12. st and ct lig­a­tures
Ital­ic — 8, 10, 12, 18, 24, 36, 42, 48, 60, 72. 14pt = 2 box­es of unused swash with ter­mi­nal and long s sorts. Some swash in 8, 10, 12, 18 and 36.
Bold — 12, 18, 24, 30, 36, 42, 48, 60, 72. Might be a box of 10pt some­where.

48, 60 and 72 have recent­ly been strength­ened up with new sorts and an extra half fount added to the 72 bold.

Most cas­es are full and oth­ers take some lift­ing! The excep­tions are 24 and 36 ital­ic which are full founts but only, I think, quar­ter strength?

NB: cas­es not includ­ed — 18pt up can be lift­ed from case and fount­ed up for mov­ing, I’ve a few odd cas­es but would need anoth­er dozen or to move over small­er sizes. Sor­ry, I real­ly need the cas­es.

For more info or pho­tos, please drop me a line.
