Who would have thought that finding the fleamarket in lovely Venice could promise such a nice booty.

I found this very nice letterpress wooden types at a very affordable price. Don't have entire families but still came pretty close in completing a nice 72pt Univers-Bold_Condensed title case ... and there are 8 other half/families among which Garamond, Times, Univers ... and some italian futurist font I didn't recognize. Owning a bit over 300 characters for now.

Can't wait to play with them.

...hopefully soon more on that topic ( searching for a press right now ) - Know anybody who owns one?
