Double Dagger: Issue 2 w/ Stanley Donwood, Virgin Wood Type, Novo Typo, Popolo Press, Thomas Mayo + moreby Double Dagger
“Justus Walbaum, a clergyman’s son from Steinlah, was apprenticed as a boy at the Konditorei where he learned to engrave pastry patterns into wood. Justus transferred this skill to letter-cutting and on setting up his type foundry in 1796 he began making typefounders’ matrices and tools…”
So begins issue 2 of Double Dagger whose pages, printed entirely from metal and wood type on a Heidelberg SBB Cylinder Press, are adorned with Monotype’s faithful interpretation of Justus Walbaum’s letters, in both the regular (series 374) and the bold (series 375). Number 2 arrives at an increased size of 16pp and contains articles and artwork from a mixture of some of our favourite printers, artists & writers.
