Printer’s Blocks is an abecedarium composed of vintage wood type and printer’s blocks letterpress printed on Magnani Revere and formed into cubes. Letters are arranged in a box as they would be in a case of type (with J and U following Z) since those letters were not used by early English printers. Two sides of each block include a variety of handset patterns created from American Type Founder’s Dainty Border No. 1-that like the border-can be arranged to delight.
