Printers & enthusiasts!
A gentleman on the Letterpress list gave me a tip that Miklos Kis' 17th
century matrices for the 'Janson' typeface now is in the possession of
'Schriftgiesserei Gerstenberg' in Darmstadt.
Does anyone of you know the address, by any chance?
Furthermore, has anyone tried to order foundry type from Stephenson
Blake & Co's and their original 'Caslon' matrices? What is their policy
nowadays, regarding minimum order etc?
Thanks in advance!
