The Wood Type

Justin Knopp has been avidly collecting wood type for over 20 years and now has one of the largest collections in the UK, comprising over 200 individual founts in sizes ranging from 4-line (48 point) to 40-line (480 point). The aim of A Cornucopia of Wooden Types is to utilise every one of these founts of wood type and demonstrate the versatility of wood type and beauty of items printed directly from it.
