905Re: [PPLetterpress] Page border-ornament examples
- Sep 10, 2002Katie:
William Addison Dwiggins designed some Deco-style piece ornaments, as
well as several dozen lovely borders which he called his Caravan
series, for Linotype. They've been digitized, I believe by Adobe. You
can see them in the original metal if you own a late edition of the
Linotype red specimen book or one of the supplements.
