Archiv für Druck und Papier, No. 2

The Archives for Printing, Paper and Kindred Trades was an international printing journal published in German and English—which is a great help, because it’s loaded with interesting articles. This one in particular has a profile of Johannes Boehland (1903–1964), a a designer of book covers, trademarks, stamps, and typefaces. He studied with O.H.W Hadank and Emil Rudolf Weiss, and taught for many years at various schools in Berlin. It’s got a good showing of his lettering and drawings—and this issue also has more than a few advertisements lettered by him. (And he lettered the cover.) If you get this, be prepared to lend it to us as we need to read this one for ourselves.
