Re: Single letter typeholder

Bookmakers International has the Garland Typeholder, brass, 1 1/4" opening.
The catalog blurb: "Many bookbinders have fashioned their own small
typeholders, but we couldn't find any for sale. Nancy Southworth, a New
Hampshire binder suggested this light-weight brass typeholder with a 1 1/4
opening useful for spine titling. Oak handle. Custom-made for BookMakers.
     Price $64 in an old catalog; may have gone up.
