Set of wood type for Beginners, made for and in collaboration with Atelier bipoint, this set was created from the necessity to make typesetting and letterpress printing more accessible to the most novice of printers.
This is achieved by using a uniform size wood block for all characters. The type is designed so the sort will accommodate both the descenders and the letter accents.
A monospaced font was used, and a set with full extended language characters, and numbers was created.
Block size is 110pt by 60pt, when used in a 10×14 grid will cover an A3 format.
