Type Tuesday - The Merrymount Press

Today we feature type specimens from the Merrymount Press. 



The press was founded by Daniel Berkeley Updike in  Boston, Massachusetts and remained active from 1893-1941.



The Merrymount Press is considered to have printed books that best represent the Arts and Crafts movement in American book arts.


The press' archives are housed at the Boston Athenaeum.
