I spent part of the weekend cleaning up the leaves and willow branches outside and the other part of the weekend painstakingly cleaning one of the new fonts I recently acquired.
What started out as a jumbled mess of nasty, greasy, dusty type that looked like this:
Is now a neat and orderly arrangement of sparkly clean type.
Each piece was soaked in a degreaser, scrubbed with a toothbrush and a citrus cleaner, and then closely inspected for damage. Damaged type (nearly 20 pounds worth!) were removed and everything else was neatly sorted in a clean case. Now I just need to print some samples so I can identify the font and figure out what to do with it.
One down, about 50 to go!
