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.
