Dwiggins and Goudy - part 2
In my last post I wondered aloud about their relationship. I recently studied the book in the attached photo. It is Rabbi Ben Ezra printed at the Village Press in 1904. The illustration and decoration is cut in wood by Dwiggins - the lettering and typography by Goudy. They produced some beautiful work together!


A tribute to two former bookkeepers who impacted American design and typography for all time.
