Lettering of Today is a great wee book Mr Meet-Cute picked up a while ago. It's basically pages of different type designs. I'm not sure when this was published, but it seems pretty 'ye olde' to me. Though it's surprising how fresh and modern some of these fonts still seem today. I guess good design never goes out of style!
I think the wood type is my favourite. Not sure what you'd use it for though… it's just so pretty to look at as it is, no need to be spelling anything out!
