More Manicules...




Now, this is how it happens...

First of all I get interested in vague kind of way about some minor printer's quirk: in this case, the pointing hand ornament. A little discussion ensues on the blog... Then I happen to see a vintage woodblock stamp with a 'manicule' device and buy it for the fun of it... Months later I am at a local auction and see a box of bits and piece including two vintage rubber stamps of manicules... these, it seems to me are particularly nice because they form a pair pointing in both directions... so I buy them... and lo! now I have another collection!
