I've seen letterpresses for sale on ebay. I don't think Ron would let me keep one in the living room.

This will only be of interest to other designers (though it is cool.) Fountain Type Foundry in Sweden has posted the scanned pages of a Village Press Type specimen book from 1914 signed by Fredrick Goudy. The book shows the typefaces Kennerly, Forum Title and initial letters, and some of Village Press's own borders and florals. Goudy is credited as being the first truly American typeface designer and his contribution to modern typeface design is incalcuable.
