A pair of 12 line UK Manicules

Image of A pair of 12 line UK Manicules


A set of two 12 line coarse engraved Manicules from the United Kingdom, laser cut into end grain hard maple. Sometimes also called Printer's Fist, Pointer, or Index. This English Wood Type Specimen was traced Gregory Walters in Adobe Illustrator from an book in his massive collection of European Specimen books. The manufacturer's name was not listed but I suspect it to be Miller and Richards from Scotland. Notice how coarse the engraving lines are compared to designs from the United States. The 12 line size just fits a post card or card.
