I recently finished a little commission from the Oxford University Society of Bibliophiles. Timing was off getting information to me and it needed to be done before I leave for Oak Knoll tomorrow so this little offering is what I had time for but it serves it’s purpose.
I tried to keep it in a proper English vein, the main body of type is Linotype Monticello which was originally offered by the Philadelphia type founders Binny & Ronaldson in 1796 as their Roman No. 1 but then re-released, curiously enough, in 1892 as Oxford before finally being reworked and released by Linotype in 1946. Baskerville is the type for display size and the front is two ATF offerings – Morris Romanized Black (Chaucer) with Freehand.
