for 1912

Job Date (in Parabiographies): March, 1912


I took over this job.Made the drawings at Williamsburg, Virginia, when I was on vacation. I am rather proud of the result. It was a complete line of checks, drafts, deposit slips, and letter paper - all the business forms required by the little bank. See typography collection. This proved a sort of trial run for my later adventures in typography as Advertising Executive for ALEXANDER, Philadelphia.
