Stemming from my love of books, reading/writing, design, and a good physical challenge, I began making wood type for letterpress printing.

For those of you who aren't quite sure what letterpress printing means, here is a good place to start.

I have uploaded a short wood type video to YouTube.

I have now completed three full sets of wood type and one partial set. Since all three sets are quite different, I've devoted a page for each one:

Set 1.0: based on Meta Black
Set 2.0: based on Meta Black
Set 2.5: based on Hiragino Kaku Gothic
Set 3.0: based on Chaparral Bold
