Earlier this week, I visited Skyline Type Foundry in Prescott, Arizona. Sky graciously opened his shop to me and gave a wonderful tour. The studio was humming with activity as they were busy casting type and preparing shipments for folks all over the world. He has a huge library of matrices, including decorative elements and borders. The shop is divided into “clean” and “dirty,” with his personal press and type collection located in his studio, and a huge outbuilding for casting and packing type. This is one of the very few places in the world this craft is being kept alive.
