Fonting Engravers Roman

BB&S' Engravers Roman, 24 pt, cast at the Dale Guild being fonted at NA Graphics. Each galley holds one line of type that goes in the full font. The wide set characters M and W were cast on a pivotal caster and the balance worked on the 24 pt Barth caster. Cast from the original 1897 mats that were purchased for us at the 1993 ATF auction. The wood galleys are also from ATF. The working surface is a refinished Hamilton double wide type case cabinet that had been painted a puke green.
