CLOISTER INITIALS 11″ x 17″
Printing was done at the Hamilton Wood Type and Printing Museum by Richard Kegler, during the APA Wayzgoose event. The newly cast 120 point initials were set up on a Vandercook proofing press and run with black ink on 100# Mohawk Superfine paper. The large G printed with silver ink is a photochemically etched block from the newly redrawn Goudy Initials. The colophon also printed in silver is hand set Bank Gothic and reads: “HAND PRINTED IN JUNE 2014 AT HAMILTON WOOD TYPE & PRINTING MUSEUM FROM P22′S DIGITAL LTC GOUDY INITIALS AND 120 POINT CLOISTER INITIALS, WHICH WERE NEWLY CAST BY GREGORY WALTERS FROM MATRICES HELD AT THE RIT CARY GRAPHIC ARTS COLLECTION”
