Technical imperfection is undoubtedly part of the character of ‘Fell’ in print. The pieces of type differ in height to an extent that horrifies a type-founder and tries the patience of a machine manager; their faces are not horizontal, many are not struck at the correct angle with the vertical.

The digitization of Fell Types. What a cool project. It would have to be the right fit for the content, but I would love to get these into a website sometime.
