¶ ONE OF THE DESIGN PROOFS of a work in progress for the John Dreyfus. You can easily find the cut, snip and slide movements of the typographical ornaments on the left hand side of the page. If you look you will see evidence of other cut, paste and repeats.
The finished material was in soft colours and was intended for the book binding. Pictures to follow in the near future.
To illustrate the John Dreyfus book, a fixed number of units where used. Not nearly as many as is shown here.
