Types of brewery cask – A2 poster

35.00

Beer and type has long been a great combination, it’s pretty much a universal fact. But we thought we’d try to prove it anyway.

It turns out that not only do old brewery casks have wonderful names, but the amount of pints they hold relates rather nicely to traditional type sizes: 36, 72, 144…

The key on the left hand side proportionally represents pints as typographic points for each cask. For example; a 6pt square ‘em’ (6pts x 6pts = 36pts) represents a Pin cask (36 pints), whereas three 24pt ems show the not insubstantial 1728 p(o)ints found in a Tun.

The A2 poster has been typeset by hand in a range of wood type and Monotype Caslon, printed in metallic copper and warm grey on Fedrigoni Materica Clay in a limited edition of just 45
