Hebrew Typelays from Melbourne Museum of Printing

Lower Case with Hebrew
Another lower case layout from the Melbourne Museum of Printing, again pre 2019, this time for 30pt Hebrew.

The type in the case was a Monotype casting.
The empty configuration is Hebrew Lower case. Note that unlike the founts shown above, Hebrew often needs two cases for the one size of type, because of all the points needed. See some versions at Hebrew.
The Melbourne Museum of Printing was finally closed in 2019, and the collections auctioned off and dispersed. The layout sheets above are now (2021) held by the New Zealand Printing Museum
