Deutscher Drucker (Deutscher Buch- und Steindrucker) Kartonnagen und Packungen. Heft 2, November 1930, 37. Jahrgang (German Printer: Cardboard Boxes and Packs. Issue 2, November 1930, Volume 37)
Wraps, quarto, 310 x 235mm, 124pp. Very Good with scuffing to the covers, including two areas of abrasion on the rear wrap; bumping to corners with a consistent crease to the bottom. General handling wear and mild age toning, but clean and unmarked. A special issue of the illustrated monthly periodical for the graphic arts and printing industries, featuring boxes and packaging. Bound in reflective aluminum foil wrappers produced by "Metallpapier-Bronzefarben-Blattmetallwerke Aktiengesellschaft" in Munich. Contents include trade articles and an incredible number and variety of advertisements and print specimens produced on specialty paper stock using a range of processes. Several pages of color illustrations show the print layout for creating graphic product packaging; articles on special machinery for package forming, printing on foils, cylinder presses for books, offset type transfer printing. Nice feature including the specimen chart for the Futura typeface which had just been designed by Paul Brennar. A superbly graphic publication, this issue literally shines.
