Could you dream of a prettier version of Cochin?

Thursday, April 30th, 2009


I just received this photograph of Nouvelle Allégorique from Mike Barnes (Cap a Pie Press). Mike writes, “[Nouvelle Allégorique was] an inexpensive book printed in 1967 . . . . Could you dream a prettier version of Cochin? (Curved tail of R for example.)”

Offhand, no. A very pretty specimen indeed and well worth sharing. Thanks, Mike.
