The Problem with rounded wood type

This wonderful wood type arrived from the USA last week - no sooner was it unpacked then it was straight to work. The original design for this font dates back to 1838. Yet it looks so incredibly fresh and contemporary. I designed a bag for the up coming (starts November 2011) CONRAN exhibition at the Design Museum last week and then used this font for a fun poster (it was just for me, it won't be on sale at the design museum), it's a real joy to print with.
