The New Type Holder Moderne 2

When a pointer to The New Type Holder Moderne 2 came to my attention via Briarpress, I had to order one: I do not give into indulgences often, but this is a tool that seems as though designed specifically for me. It arrived in the post today, and it is as truly wonderful – finely-machine, cleverly-designed, lovingly-packaged.

Peter, you'll find this tool most useful for setting the brass type and ornaments used in bookbinding. True foundry type will work well too, but be careful hand-stamping with softer letters cast on the Monotype caster. They will smash quite easily.
