This sonnet has been typeset by hand in original 16-point Caslon types. The steel punches of thistype were hand-cut by William Caslon in London in 1720s. These types are part of the original equipment of Tallone’s typographic studio, which has been continuously in operation since the 18th century:
Printed letterpress on pure-cotton Magnani paper, mould-made in Pescia, Tuscany.

Tallone’s typographic studio has been continuously in operation since the 18th century, and its vast endowment of original foundry types and presses is still in use. Neither monotype nor linotype are used. These typesetting systems from a keyboard are often passed off as manual typography. The Tallone Press also does not print from plastic plates derived from digital compositions.
