A lovely series! Thank you for this contribution, Michael. I have added a couple more IDs and also mentioned a few digital options, but there are still several unidentified typefaces here. We’d be happy to hear from anyone with a better knowledge of English wood and metal type.
Thanks for responding to my request on your fine Instagram, Michael! I added another typeface guess on the caption for The King of Marving Gardens. I assume it’s another generic wooden Antique, but perhaps someone can get more specific.
The type is lovely, and I know that’s what we’re here for, but those illustrations are sublime. These have found their place into my wood type canon.
I’ve always loved this set!
