Catchwords – The beloved ‘AND’


Feb 14, 2013 Blog 0 Comments

What a rare beauty; catchwords are hard to find. We covet them dearly. We found this one in northern Virginia. This 18 line ‘AND’ measures about 1.75″ x 3″, a wonderful size for poster printing. It is listed as No. 12 in the 1878 catalog of Wm. H. Page Wood Type Co. and was manufactured in Norwich, Connecticut. Isn’t it in great condition? I just love when wood type is well cared for.
