The Geek Within

OK, I realize I'm revealing the total geek within, but I love old letterpress machines and boxes of metal type! This photo is from the 2008 Frankfurt Book Fair. One entire building was devoted to photo and art books, with a display of old printing presses, handmade paper, engravings, and paintings on the top floor.

Do any of you know what kind of type this is? I wish I'd asked more questions at the Book Fair. Too late now.
