Type Tuesday - Papyrus: revue de toutes les industries du papier et de l'imprimerie and du livre

The French journal on paper and the paper trade, Papyrus: revue de toutes les industries du papier et de l'imrimerie and du livre, provided a directory and review of the paper industry and trade in not only France and the French colonies, but also Great Britain, Switzerland, Belgium and the United States. 

The journal's covers masked the more technical purpose of the trade journal, with bright colors, heavy embossed details, gold lettering and Egyptian-themed illustrations. 










The Kemble Collection on Western Printing and Publishing holds a near complete run of the journal between the years of 1926 and 1930.
