Maybe because of my Yorkshire roots, and maybe because I used to live just across the river from where the De Little factory once stood, I always seem to appreciate De Little wood type that little bit more.
Mixed in with the haul I got on Friday was this lovey 3" De Little slim uppercase fount. It took a lot of searching to find all the letters but we got there in the end. I was sure there were no complete founts but now I have hope I might find a few more. I hate to see founts broken up and if I can manage to salvage a few more I'll be chuffed.
Consisting of around 120 individual characters, at least one of each letter and number and generally in good condition, it's just one of the G's that has taken a knock over the many years. It's available to buy now at £210
