Lovely Letterpress Leftovers

Picture 14 Spotted these grand assemblage pieces by Eric Ulrich on Junkculture.

As letterpress afficionados, though, we must make a disclaimer: if you happen upon a set of wood block type, make sure it's incomplete and thoroughly dinged up before you re-purpose it.  Good, complete sets of fonts are hard to come by. Consult with a pro. : )  (These look pretty well worn; the blog says Eric salvaged the type from a printing company in Iowa.)

Love the textures and colors! Makes us feel at home.
