‘What Face Wednesday’ No.7

Welcome to the seventh ‘What Face Wednesday’ metal typeface identification competition! This week I am offering the prize of a pastiche Victorian letterpress poster (including free International p&p), hand-typeset and printed by myself on a mid-nineteenth century Columbian handpress. The prize can be viewed here.

All correct answers will be placed in a hat and one winner will be randomly drawn. To enter the prize draw, all you need to do is identify the typeface shown below and email your answer to me.

Answers must be received by 6 o’clock (GMT) on Wednesday 3rd June. Good luck!

Congratulations to the winner of this week’s competition, Michael Faber, who correctly identified the typeface as Prisma. This typeface, an inline version of Rudolph Koch’s Cable, was cast by Gebr. Klingspor in 1931.

    Wow this is actually the first time I’ve ever seen the metal letters of a handpress. Quite beautiful really.
