This is an original pencil drawing for casting of a typographic sign number 59: Ruby 12 'R' from the type foundry Linotype.

If you are looking for a gift for someone passionate about typography or you are yourself this is a very unique piece. An original pencil drawing that would have been used to cast the font, letter or typographic symbol. A little piece of typographic history.

With hand written notes marking the examed signature and dated 23/11/43 and with other hand written notes marking dimensions, sign no 59, Ruby 12 and Agate Scale.

Would look great framed in a chunky black or white frame on the wall. Size is 350mm square rounded up.

Will be supplied in a tube.

I also have various letters in a number of different typefaces, please convo me if you are interested in seeing these.
