I am lucky enough to have recently aquired a hand typeholder, that holds brass type to hand title books with gold lettering – a beautiful thing – but before it arrived, I was having a little sulk one day, lamenting my lack of said tool, and my youngest, Mr 7 said he wished he could help.
He went away to play, and soon came back with this..
“Here mum, I made you the best typeholder in the world. Your books will be even more beautiful”
It is remarkably detailed, and even has adjusting wheels at the ends. Very clever boy 🙂
Here is what my other typeholder looks like, for all the non-binders out there..
[cue tears of pride and joy, cuddles together and a place of pride for my new ‘tool’ on the bookshelf]
I am such a lucky mum.
