    Announcing the Printerís Type Case!


    Iím very excited to announce the arrival of the ďPrinterís Type Case,Ē a new CD-ROM package of 24 original mid-19th century fonts, borders, and ornaments in both Mac Type 1 and PC TrueType formats.

    Each font is documented in a 57-page PDF booklet which includes an image of the typeface in an original 19th century document from the Library of Congress, as well as background information about period type sizes.

    Download and check it out for yourself at: http://www.jrwickerstytypefaces.com/...rsTypeCase.pdf
    (32 Megs)

    This collection includes THE body typeface and italic typeface commonly used in 19th century books, newspapers, and broadsides. While others have come close, copying and distressing typefaces developed in the 1890s, The Printerís Type Caseís body typeface comes directly from the pages of a book of poetry printed in 1857, and the italic from a primary school reader printed in 1881.

    Also included are display fonts copied from typefaces in original 19th century printer specimen books, as well as a ornamental dashes, a font of hilarious silhouettes from the 1855 edition of Petersonís Magazine, as well as 4 borders coming directly from period broadsides from the Library of Congress.

    All this for $55 with shipping included!

    Jaunt on over to http://www.jrwickerstytypefaces.com to order!

    This project has been years in the making, and Iím happy to introduce the Printerís Type Case to you all!

    Got mine Friday. Had fun all day setting up stuff and seeing how it would come out. Haven't figured out borders and ornaments but I'm sure that'll come along.

    I've enjoyed Mr. Wickersty's PTC immensely since receiving it (I missed the Bully Buy Announcement by a few days). Its possibilities are endless! So far, I've put together a sign for my high school history classroom that I hope will amuse my students. Let's see if I can attach it here.
