Linotypesetting - Letterform Archive ‘Dwiggins’
late July to early December ’17 typesetting Dwiggins’ words in Dwiggins’ faces & ornaments for Bruce Kennett’s book on W.A. Dwiggins to be published by the Letterform Archive.

After a rocky start with bad metal, a mal-adjusted Model 31 Linotype, a too-full pot that liked to burp up molten metal, and sending some tight lines that ate mats, things settled in for a long hot summer of typesetting, and revisions.

Bruce and I finally did a marathon 3-day session making up all the forms for Darrell Hyder to print at Sun Hill Press.
