THE OLD SCHOOL PRESS

The printing of The Bricks of Venice

Chapter heading

This is a close-up of the 36pt Bembo italic that I am using for the chapter headings. I sometimes wonder just how old are some of the 'clumps' I am using (the large spaces such those to the left of the '3' here) - some of them bear the marks of type foundries long since gone. But they have found their way from printer to printer, finally ending up (so far) at The Old School Press.
