The first wooden letters for poster work were craft-produced in the 18th century, and this catalogue, entitled Specimen de caracteres en bois de la maison Bonnet, probably dates from the 1860s. The republication of this catalogue demonstrates that letters, like buildings, incarnate the spirit of an age, while preserving a timeless quality that constitutes a lasting source of inspiration. Includes a CD.
