I've been collecting printer's type blocks for years. I usually find them at flea markets or antique shops. For all the designers out there wood type is our object of affection. It seems though type is going mass market because I found this coffee table at Crate and Barrel. The top is carved from a single piece of wood (so they haven't used real wood type) and it's protected tempered glass. For $899 I'd rather make my own.
