Hand & Eye Foundry

16 February 2012

We’d like to use our collection of Monotype matrices to make type for people, so we’ve started Hand & Eye Foundry. We’re selling quarter-founts of anything we have in sizes up to and including 14 pt for £25.00 plus postage and packing. We’ll be making a dedicated web site for it if we get sufficient response, and in the meantime you can see what we’re up to on Twitter. In the last couple of days we’ve picked up 80 followers and have had an enquiry from someone looking for some Porson Greek.

We’ll be selling sundries like leads, spaces and quoins too, and we can set your copy and supply the type for you to print.

    Having just acquired an Adana without any type, and having looked at the offerings available on eBay, I’d definitely be interested in getting hold of some new type from you. Bembo, Garamond and Gill Sans, for starters …

    I’m planning to retrieve my Adana 8-5 from my parents’ loft later in the year – I’m very glad to find I’ll have somewhere to buy new type from!
