Star Type

I recently bought some type on Ebay, which had been unopened by the original purchaser, and came completely wrapped in its original packaging when sold by Star Type of Birdstall in 1984.  It was quite exciting to open it (there was no guarantee the type would be usable!). Luckily the type was as fresh as the day it was cast, and has been used since.

It is Goudy Bold Italic, 12pt. It’s a fair size font. Now I am on the lookout for more Goudy which I have started to appreciate much more.
