Montrouge : Draeger frères, 1924. — In-folio. 312: (4 ff. First white), 11 plates, illustrated cover. In sheets, under shirt with jacket adorned with a typographic decoration. Prestigious catalog glorifying the graphic arts industries through a leading collaboration between the printer Draeger, the writer Jean Cocteau and the artist Charles Martin. The text is a treasure trove of typographic presentation and calls out to advertisers to encourage them to have Draeger catalogs edited. It is followed by 11 boards designed by Charles MARTIN (1884-1934) in the purest Art Deco spirit. "This catalog is the perfect celebration, never equaled, of the publishing professions, as well as one of the most prestigious DRAEGER albums" (Forney exhibition 1988, n ° 82). A few spots and pitting on the dust jacket and a few small freckles scattered on the boards.
