Li Bai Broadside and galley of De Roos type

This Broadside contains Music type, Chinese type and Monotype Bembo cast at our foundry. It is a new translation paired with a Tang Lute Song transcribed by Laurence Pickens and published in Li Po & Tu Fu by Arthur Cooper, Penguin Books, 1973.

We will post our typelist here for visitors to download or view when we learn how to do that.

Also coming will be other images of Books and Broadsides which we print or publish.

I hope to start some discussions on the History of Type and in particular Punchcutting in the interest of preserving things we have learned over the last 30 years.

Golgonooza Letter Foundry & Press designs, composes, prints and with Enitharmon Bindery binds fine hand made books for our publishing wing Trois Fontaines and for the public. As a foundry we have 43 different English and American Monotype typefaces. We can also cast many of the sizes of the ATF Garamond, Garamond Open and De Roos matrices we hold. In addition we have created two award winning new metal typefaces using hand-cut punches, named Regulus and Parmenides. We have been casting metal type for 28 years and printing metal type for 31 years. In addition we have given lectures on the History of Type and Punchcutting across the US and in England, Germany and Greece. One of our co-proprietors Dan Carr has published a number of articles and reviews on the History of Type in Matrix etc.
