I'm aware that some of you do their research on old type by going into archives. Furthermore there are possibilities to see rar type specimens on platforms like archive.org.
Admittedly I feel a bit overwhelmed as a graphic design student looking for examples of old metal type. Where and how do you do your research for example on specific typefaces like a Granjon, Garamond or Griffo (I mean prints done with the original matrizes of their workshops – not reissues)?
(Now it's more like looking for something specific and getting something other like nice surprises I wasn't looking for.
Like this fine discovery:https://euvs-vintage-cocktail-books.cld.bz)
I'm thrilled to hear your perspective on this matter!
