Shakespeare’s First Folio

I will be demonstrating paper making at an event that features the First Folio. I also do some letterpress using my paper. For reference I would like to know the type face, points and press used for the folio. Maybe someone can fill me in on this or give me directions to learn about the type face, points etc.

Possibly try St. Bride Foundation London U.K. Good Luck.

Or the Folger Shakespeare Library in Washington DC probably has a copy.

Good little article here-

I don’t believe there’s a particularly accurate modern equivalent; people have made digital versions that you could have made into a plate, if that’s your kind of thing.

effrapress - Thank you for this information. This is just what I was looking for. Great material!!!!!
