It is with a heavy heart that I inform the letterpress community that Bill Jones passed away on November 6, 2012. He was comfortable and not in pain.
Bill felt that Virgin Wood Type was his legacy. So he dedicated most of his time since his diagnosis to training me to make wood type. Most of the type that has shipped over the past few months was made by me, Geri McCormick, Bill’s wife. I am determined to continue the manufacture of wood type.
I have found this wonderful young man who reminds me of Bill of yesteryear. So Derek and I are working together to continue to make wood type.
