Lost typeface printing blocks found in river Thames

Printing blocks for a typeface called Doves Type have been discovered in the River Thames.

The font has not been used for nearly a century as the printing type blocks, used to print letters, were thrown into the river in 1917.

Nick Wilmshurst reports.
