Battered and worn, this piece of type, probably once shiney and new,
now looks as discarded as the plank on which it is attached to.

It appears the easier type is to create the less value we attribute to it.

One only has to think of the Trajan column. The efforts of master craftsmen,
it is now heralded as a typographic masterpiece.

The same cannot be said of this piece of typography, as texturally interesting as it is.
