Lately I’ve been prowling the typecases as I plan my next project: a Wayzgoose signature. After some sorting and reorganizing (I finally managed to sort some of the wood type!), I decided to print up a few of the blocks and fleurons that I’ve admired for years.
One of my objectives was to test the quality of the bird and cow blocks I had found, because they may just fit into my Wayzgoose plans. So, a broadside of sorts, printed using Caslon bold in 60 point, with Caligo safewash inks. Five good proofs, printed for fun. And I was glad I took this photo: it forced me to proof-read more closely!
