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.

Available as a 3A scheme - 60 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.

English Sycamore (part of the Maple family), clear shellac
