Banksy under the shadow of Vesuvius

Now I like typography – love the craft and skill of lettering both hand done and machine. However my interest pales in comparison to that on my Uncle James. I remember once visiting him in St Brides, seeing the racks and racks of metal and wooden letters and making the tiniest print of a curlicue or vine using a metal block; it can’t have been any bigger than 2mm square. He has spoken and written extensively about typography, and now I just discovered his blog. It is that of a full on typophile so be prepared! The bit about the hand-written signs written in the moonlight at Pompeii is great :)
