Typography in Wood

In stock (50 items available)
The first wooden letters for poster work were craft-produced in the 18th century. With the advent of mechanical reproduction and widespread commercial advertising in the 1820s, there is an amplified desire for new types with increased visibility. 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.
