Please note that this is Cloister OS No. 2, which has DIAMOND dots and points which are in keeping with Jenson’s original cutting. New matrices were cut at the Dale Guild by T. Rehak for the 16pt size only. There were about a half dozen 100# text fonts cast; no small fonts were cast. The type is lightly used, much is uninked. Some caps & lower-case were mortised on a rare Rouse Mortising Machine for better fitting. Some seen at bottom of cap/small cap box and others are here & there. No kerning caps/small caps to break.
