  • Type
    I am disposing of a number of founts that - to date - I have felt worth keeping, but cannot see myself using. They vary in size and condition, some are in case and some founted, so please get in touch for details if any are of interest. Inspection is recommended. I'm not keen to organise shipping of cased founts, so collection is preferred for them. Below you will find either photos or scans of proofs.
