Letterpress Stuff

Rare John Haddon & Co Copper/Brass Composing Stick

So I've been out and about the last few months buying letterpress lots at various auctions, primarily to build up my stock of items.

But, as many times items are sold in boxes, I've ended up with more than I need (who needs 6 composing sticks - unless you are a collector).

So I've started going through everything, deciding on what I'm keeping and what can go.

One of the items that can go is a really beautiful and tactile John Haddon & Co copper and brass 12 inch composing stick I picked up.

It really is lovely, but right now I'm more interested in investing in my stock of type, so no matter how beautiful I find it, it's off to eBay.

I've also put up some Cornerstone ally furniture if you need some ...

Here are the links:

I'll be posting more letterpress items on to eBay over the next few days, as well as some new items for my Etsy shop.

Stay busy, stay happy ...
