Lead type

On my first day back at Newton Press Ltd, Cliff, who works the old machine there gave me a bag. I opened it and he had given me some old lead type from the machines they have there that they no longer use. He gave me my first name in both uppercase and lower case. How thoughtful!

They smell all oily and old, they're lovely and I will be using them in my home-made publications and books in the future.

Simple. Lovely.
