THE OLD SCHOOL PRESS

From our catalogue of posters.


De tranquillitate animi

Another serendipitous find. I came across a fragment of this piece and, through the wonders of the internet, traced it to the writings of the Roman author Seneca. It was just so appropriate for a private press, with its clear warning about pointless ostentation in books, that a poster was quickly devised.


14pt Hunt Roman with Trump Gravur, printed on a half-sheet of hand-made paper, probably mid-twentieth-century French. 57*43cm. 20.
