I hoping for a little assistance in making a typographic connection to the town/area of Dorchester in Dorset, UK.

Hi James,

there’s always Dorchester Script

yola,

I believe a fella called Alan Reynolds Stone is from Dorset...or maybe he was just buried there.
He was an engraver and such...but he also did some typography, I think a face called Minerva is his.

It's a stretch, but there you go!

v.good Florian, I probably deserved that!

Impressive connection Leigh, you were right called Minerva, lived and buried in Dorset.
Many thanks for that.

Reynolds Stone did a number of woodcuts showing people reading.





He certainly loved the Dorset countryside.

Yes what attention to the details, and a reader for every generation.

Those woodcuts are great. Love that second one.
