Let me suggest that you get in touch with Jim Van Lanen at the
Hamilton Wood Type Museum in Two Rivers, Wisconsin. I'd bet that they would
be *delighted* to loan you all sorts of stuff that would be perfect for
your exhibition, including some samples of giant wood type. Here's the URL:

Golden To: [log in to unmask] help. Large specimen of wood type
<[log in to unmask]
I need the help of some kind, gentle soul out there.
I am preparing an exhibition on wood type for my library and I realized I
don't have any examples of large type. Does anyone have at least one piece
of wood type 12 inches or taller (I'd love one 24"+) they would be willing
to sell me so I can include it in the exhibition?
