Kickstarter Ending!!!

This is it - 18 hours left in our Kickstarter campaign to save wood type. We are grateful to everyone who already donated, and we wanted to let you know that when we put out the call,
some wood type was donated as well! So before we use our funds to acquire new wood type and print some amazing specimen sheets, we've already been integrated those donations into our collection. We'll be making specimen sheets with these typefaces as well, and those will go out to our Kickstarter backs too...just to give you a little taste, here are some photos of these early arrivals :-)
There's still a chance to get in on this opportunity!!! Donate now!

A Fine Specimen

We've been working the presses overtime lately at WNYBAC printing tons of new specimen sheets, gig posters, cards, and architectural prints. If you haven't been down in a while, it's really time to visit and check out all of the phenomenal work. Pictured below, a specimen sheet of an as-yet-unidentified brush script wood type font. It was designed with nostalgia in mind - don't you remember learning cursive on that amazing two-color ruled paper?
