We often talk about the provenance of our presses. Who came before, how the press was passed along to the next printer. Date of manufacturer, and all that. But the provenance of type drawers... They have their own tale to tell. And clearly these drawers are coming from different adventures, different places. So much of what fascinates us here in the studio is the history of the pieces we use to do our work. Built to last. Beauty in imperfection.
