Specimen Project 02

The Specimen Project is a monthly challenge to produce a print showcasing & celebrating various letter types & printing techniques. Letterpress, Lino, Wood engraving & Woodcuts will be the main methods of printing.

Specimen 02, a Letterpress Print hand set in wood & metal type with rule, was printed on a Stephenson Blake proof press, using oil based inks. Inspired by a recent Monotype exhibtion, I wanted to produce a print to show the various faces in the Gill type family that I have tucked away in type drawers.
