    Printing press letters. I have approx. 900 in all different styles and sizes, but most are just standard block text and easy to describe. This one is one that i am not quite sure how to explain. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

      Looks like old wood block "display type". It is a condensed type face but I don't know the name of it, but if you find a graphic designer that works with type all the time, they should be able to help you out.

      Most of the wood type that still exists in the US was made by Hamilton. There is now a fabulous Hamilton Wood Type Museum, get in touch with them: http://www.woodtype.org/

      PLEASE DO NOT USE FOR CRAFTING! It breaks my heart when I see perfectly good antique wood type chopped up and used in horrid crafter signs, etc. Wood type is a very practical tool, still used by letterpress printers, and is FINITE. No one makes it any longer. Letterpress printers buy to preserve and use.
