Novadam Album IV. La precomposion y el dibujo tipografico | La precomposition et le dessin typographique | Pre-composition and typographic design. 4to, 32cm, pp.24 + [112] plates, Estaban Trochut Bachmann, Barcelona, 1952.

Text in Spanish, French and English; an extraordinary type specimen book in which type ornaments (printed in many colours, with much use of gold and silver) are very ingeniously combined to create illustrations for title-pages, wine labels, share certificates, bookplates, book covers, etc. Type faces include: Futura, Bisonte, Liliom, Perpetua, Muriel, Cleopatra - but chiefly this is a tour-de-force in the use of ornament. Spral-bound in stiff decorative covers. A very good copy indeed.

An exemplar in art deco design, oddly reminiscent of The Printers International Specimen Exchange.
