A few more photos of the Caslon type specimen book I posted yesterday (remember, I said I took way too many photos!). But how could I not show you the music? Or the type ornaments!
The book itself is a beautiful thing too - the gold-tooled binding, an old shelf mark, and those beautiful marbled endpapers. These photos wouldn’t fit in the first post, but they’re too good not to share.
