From introduction: “The Phillips’ Old Fashioned Type Collection shown in this booklet is indeed ‘genuine old’, having been cast roughly within the period 1870 to the 1920’s. They have added charm, for they show effects of use in varying degrees. Many can be color separated by painting out portions of the letters on 2 or more proofs to create ‘old ornate’ for a true Currier and Ives result.” Supplementing their metal type collection is a smaller collection of old fashioned wood types, many nearly a century old and present in their original size and form. An index of typefaces is included in the front of the book.
