Wooden type collages

I love wooden type, and anything to do with old printing techniques and methods. One of my favourite places to visit is The Print Museum in Beggars Bush in Dublin. Here you can not only see but touch and play with the beautiful printing presses and cases of type. The only thing you can’t do is take any of it home with you!

On my quest to find something to hang on our sitting room wall I stumbled upon this site. The old printing shop has a collection of wooden type that they can create custom wood type collages with. You can pick to base your collage around a specific letter or number. You can also order individual letters or whole alphabets! One of these is definitely on my Christmas wish list.

    Love it. Must make a trip there. Sounds deadly. Living in Dublin almost 12 years and I seem to have done and seen feck all!

    Oh you should, it’s great!

    I know the feeling though, there are plenty of tourists who’ve seen more Dublin attractions in a few days than I have in 10 years : )
