A Specimen of Some Type Faces for Book Printing

San Francisco: Cranium Perss, nd. 5 1/2 x 13" broadside, letterpress. Illustrated with a single footer image of a train going over a bridge.

A type specimen sheet advertising different fonts available at the press. Includes typesettings of quotes rom Plato, Palissy, Heraclitus and Eugen Gomringer, and, a quote from "Vice-President Ky", stating "We'll do it again in Laos next year". Something about the tenor of that last one making us wonder if this was possibly the work of Holbrook Teter during his time spent working for Clifford Burke at Cranium.

Fine. Item #25687

Price: $25.00
