Letterpress-printed from handset foundry types.
For instance, the word “Elevato” (“uplifted”) has been handset in original Jakob Erbar’s Lucina cast in 1926, the first reversed typeface issued by a German foundry.
Printed on very fine paper and sewn by hand, this collector’s edition is handmade in the most ancient typographic studio in the world still in activity, where handmade bookmaking and modern aesthetic combine to give the best possible reading experience.
Tallone book is a sophisticated, valuable gift meant to last over time.
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.
