Lost in Type
Found on the doormat yesterday morning a parcel containing the proof for my Port Eliot double crown poster advertising The World of Andrews of Arcadia. A most delightful hour was then spent on the telephone to the poster's creator, Mr. Martin Clark of the Parish of Letterpress, discussing one of the typefaces he is using on the poster which dates back to Anno Domini 1853 and which he tells me was in use prior to the advent of the point system.
