Today we feature some more examples of international print and typography found in our Kemble Collection. These exquisite samples of design are found in an 1891 German volume entitled Internationaler Graphischer Muster-Austansch des Deutschen Buchdricker-Vereins.
The text of this beautiful sampler is in German and I must admit to my ignorance of the language. I gather that the book was either curated or provided samples of work by members of the German Printers Association of Leipzig, although there are samples from printers all over the European continent.
The Kemble Collection holds three volumes of Internationaler Graphischer Muster-Austansch des Deutschen Buchdricker-Vereins. Stop by our research library to view in person or stay tuned to Type Tuesdays to see more of these magnificent pieces.
