The Letterfoundry of Michael & Winifred Bixler has been devoted to the book arts, particularly the craft of fine letterpress printing and traditional book typography, since 1965. The typefaces and ornaments produced by their shop foundry are all cast from English Monotype .050" drive matrices, and in a metal alloy of superior hardness. Also note: these are Anglo-American type height—.918" high. 

Although the Bixlers cast fonts of type on commission—and you should contact them directly for your metal type needs—DRY is now offering some “Handypacks” of their Monotype ornaments.

The first 6 sets are 18-point and contain 54 ornaments each. The second installment features eight sets: seven available in 18-point and three in 36-point (see details below). The 18pt packs weigh one pound and the 36 pt packs weigh one pound, 10 oz. (please note: shipping calculation for multiple styles will not take the USPS flat rate boxes we use into consideration. If you are overcharged for shipping multiple styles, we will refund the overage)
