Similar to George Ryan's Jingle Wide.
How old is the invitation?
- Mike Yanega
I meant THE INVITATION
From what I could find, I see the 55th TDC competition was 2009, so that makes me think that the fourth may have been in 1958 (assuming one per year). This would mean we are looking at metal or photo type.
I just looked in my Solotype Catalog, and found it as "Athenean Wide" (p.128)
Through some Googling I found that SSK digitized this in at least 2 weights using the name Tobias. I recall SSK as one of the sources with a bad reputation, so I don't know if you want to look further, but I did find at least one site with TobiasSSK in two weights. It is the same design.
Very nice sleuthing, Mike.
Thanks Mike. This thread shows one reason why it helps for us to know how old images are.
Thanks a lot.
I saw the preview of TobiasSSK and I guess I'll have to make my own version.
