Steven Heller, at Print, just posted some excerpts from a 1919 satirical report by graphic design pioneer W.A. Dwiggins. Everything Heller has posted is worth a read (in the main, wonderfully rendered “documentary” interviews on the question of declining book design). But my favorite bit is what I’ve posted above, which Heller writes demonstrates that “Dwig did not mince fever lines.”
Indeed. And, perhaps more to the point, it’s beautifully done.
