A Few Faces of Emil Rudolf Weiss

I published this small specimen book in two editions, German and English. Weiß designed a number of handsome typefaces that are still in use today. The Weiß Lapidar that appears on the title page below is especially handsome. Bound by the inestimable Sarah Creighton, who also is responsible for the stunning pastepapers.

Hand-printed on a Korrex cylinder press on Zerkall papers.
