As you probably know by now one of my many passions is typography. This image was taken a few years ago in Williamsburg, VA. In Colonial Williamsburg they have preserved the town as it was in the 1770’s. If you visit you will see things being done just as they were over 200 years ago.
There is a profound beauty in tools and utensils that are still functional but show years of wear and good use. The metal type being set here is a perfect example. The wear on the letters is apparent especially after their impression is set in ink on paper.
