Hand-set letterpress printing is how things were done for hundered of years, long before you could have computer-based graphics turned into "plates" and the use of the @ symbol as we know it. So using wood and lead type from my collection I created this birthday invitation using an assortment of "3's" as the background and then hand setting the text in 24pt. Bodoni.
