Introducing 'Winkworth' - a revival of the Day & Collins 'Fancy' woodtype from 1889.
Named after Jeremy Winkworth who rescued the original woodtype and redrawn by Phil Treble.
12 line (50.8mm) size cut from end grain English Sycamore hardwood using a combination of modern CNC technology and traditional hand woodworking tools (including an original printers saw), made to English type-high (0.918in or 23.3mm) within plus or minus 0.1mm tolerance, sealed with shellac and hand finished with a traditional polished printing surface.
Available as a 3A scheme - 64 letters. Please see scheme details on the left.
I can also cut individual letters if you have a particular project in mind - please email what letters you would like.
A 18 line drop shadow version like the original is also planned.
Printed samples by Tom Daniel and Alan Qualtrough
