    Metal Type (& Some Papers) by Milroy, Rollin; Claudia Cohen

    Vancouver: Heavenly Monkey. Fine+ in Fine+ dust jacket. 2013. First Edition; First Printing. Hardcover. Published in an edition of 35 press-numbered copies and issued in two states. Each page was printed in at least two colors (drawing from a much larger palette than normally) , which means each sheet passed through the press a minimum of four times; hence the small edition. The regular state, this listing, copies numbered 16 – 35, were cased at Heavenly Monkey in the same manner as the earlier Types/Paper/Print: a printed pattern paper (“Fonts” designed by artist Dana Cromie) over thin boards. Very Fine condition; The companion (of sorts) to 2012’s Types/Paper/Print, but more playful and colorful, this new book presents all of the metal types sought out, adopted by, and dumped upon Heavenly Monkey over the past 15 years. Some of these types have never before been printed at the studio, for a variety of reasons, e.g. Insufficient quantity to be useful in a project; one of the vowels is missing; available in capitals only; and in a few cases, just too odd to use. The last book produced in the original Heavenly Monkey studio ; 42 pages .
