    Thanks! Talking at Typecon about the Coggeshall bequest of Goudyiana to the Cary Collection, including the lost types.

Artifacts All Around: Typographic Curiosities at the Cary Collection
      Amelia Hugill-Fontanel, RIT

Plaster casts of body parts — Miniature presses fit for a doll’s house — Relics in brass and steel: carefully carved, punched, or molded — Animal skin rendered into the finest substrate — Are these unlikely holdings for a library or integral pieces in our typographic heritage? Catch a glimpse of some unique artifacts from the RIT Cary Graphic Arts Collection and hear the fascinating tales of how these items came to reside in a library which holds some 30,000 volumes dedicated to the history of printing, books arts, graphic design, and typography.
