This is the Iron Hand press that we'll print on in a couple of weeks.
Tonight, we set more type, and the design people started working on their designs for their wood blocks, wood engravings, and linocuts. Because they are in a different room, I'm not always sure where they're at in the process. We just pop in to make sure we have enough room for our type (12 pt. Kennerly, with a 36 pt. Goudy Handtooled front cover).
We also needed a colophon, and somehow I ended up with that task, so I need to finalize the text (it's a lot of text) and then we'll split up the type setting. I remember a wise person telling me what a wise person had told him: When you're settting type, you become very aware of extra words and extra-long words. It's easier to cut when you know that anything you keep, you will have to set.
I didn't set so much type tonight, but I was able to proof what I had set and have my technique corrected (that's why I'm there), and use the big tweezers to swap out worn type and a weird italic n (how did that get in there?) and a small-cap L.
Next week: More type, and we begin lockup.
P.S. Speaking of type, I remain flummoxed by the blog fonts. If I set it at Georgia and it says Georgia in the list of fonts, why won't it show up as Georgia? (It gets so messy!)
