Default Wanna buy a vowel?

The Museum of Printing in North Andover, MA is having a Type Sale starting Saturday and continuing through August.
Among things on sale: wood and metal fonts, advertising cuts, entire type cabinets with type, proof presses, etc.
More info and a look and some of the stuff on sale is at http://www.museumofprinting.org/Calendar.html

If you're in the Boston area and have a spare afternoon, the Museum is fun. They have a working Linotype, a bunch of photocomposers, and some working presses. Their library includes the complete set of Linotype USA matrix drawings (and now, a bunch of old Seybold reports which I've been unloading there.)
