Based on a layout originally produced by the Monotype Type Foundry in the 1930s, this is a later re-issue, possibly from the 1970s, by Monotype themselves. Part of a series of 5, these type ornament specimen posters are increasingly rare. They were designed to showcase the various different type 'ornaments' (the decorative bits) available from the foundry for printers to use for their Letterpress printing. This one features their flourishing range of 'Fleuron' ornaments. While it was effectively a promotional item, it looks stunning in a beautiful wooden frame and mount. A must for any type or Letterpress fan.
As with all of our vintage items, it is a genuine original, no reproductions or reprints here! This poster is in excellent condition. Please check the photos to confirm.
Framed dimensions - 54cm x 67cm
Framed with a 40mm wide off white mount in a 19mm wooden frame with a dark walnut stained finish, supplied ready to hang.
