> Hi. Two questions:

> 1. I will be moving some cases of type. In two slanted Ludlow cases I've mixed
> faces and sizes in trays, storing the letters face up for easy identification

> into the usual jumbled typecase mess. Any clever ideas on what I could stuff

>
> 2. I'm ready to title a slender 1709 book rebound on five cords, full calf,
> with traditional blind tooling. My smallest type in an appropriate face is
> 8pt, resulting in every word needing hyphenation. Have any of you seen English
