Of the just shaping of letters ….
The Grolier Club,
Beautifully designed and exquisitely executed, Powell’s books are also sturdily and durably crafted. This binding on a copy of the Grolier Club’s 1917 edition of Albrecht Dürer’s Of the just shaping of letters is in black morocco decorated with forty-eight inlays, each embossed or tooled with a letter of the alphabet derived from one of Dürer’s designs. It is signed on the rear board with Powell’s RP monogram and dated 1962.
Gift of John M. Crawford, Jr. for the Grolier Club centennial, 1984.
