The Land In The Fork


You can’t tell from my screen but this booklet was printed by hand and each page was done by letterpress. Whenever you open it, you can feel the textures and how each of the letter blocks indent the page. This was published in 1959 by DUODECIMO, designed by the Advanced Typography Group at Carnegie Institute of Technology (now CMU) along with several contributors for each page. It goes through Pittsburgh’s history and gives a brief snippet of the years starting with 1754 all the way to 1959. These books were limited editions and only 250 copies existed. I managed to get my hands on this one through Kelly Carter of PghBox, her grandfather contributed to it and she was kind of enough to lend this one to me.
