Luxor Rev - It was a period in the eighties before computers had really made inroads to publishing. During a typical call to a premiere New York typesetter—ordering some headlines in wood type—he told me "It's a good thing you called today, I was just about to throw all my wood faces away, nobody's asking for them anymore!" Before he threw them out, I asked him to make up a master photo strip of complete glyph sets of all of the faces that were more or less complete, and for a few years, we used them this way at Koppel & Scher. Later, when I moved to Esquire, I had them digitized with the flaws and irregularities intact. At the time, digitized wood fonts that actually printed like the old wooden faces were hard to find, and for decades I reserved them for personal use. Now, for the first time commercially, I am offering these unique digitized drawings of authentic wood type.
