The Ludlow Project

(Youtube Direktludlow, via core77)

Schönes Projekt des International Printing Museum in Kalifornien. Die wollen alte Schriftmatritzen aus dem Ludlow Schriftsatzsystem retten und finanzieren sich das grade per Kickstarter:

We here at the International Printing Museum seek to rescue a collection of approximately 100 full fonts of antique Ludlow Typecasting matrices, catalog & organize the fonts into our working collection & digitize Ludlow Type Specimen books with notes on available fonts for letterpress projects. Along with the Museum's other metal, wood type fonts, these matrices will be available for casting type to be used by museum patrons, graphic designers & letterpress printers nationally for all kinds of projects including letterpress poster and business card printing, invitation and greeting card printing projects and creative jewelry making and art projects.
