Specimens of Chromatic Wood Type, Borders, &c. is a reproduction of a vintage volume with an established cult status within the bibliophile, typographic, and design worlds. Originally published as a catalogue for William H. Page's Connecticut wood type foundry, it is considered one of the finest type specimen books, featuring elaborate display typefaces meant to announce tent revivals and circuses.

In addition to the beautifully intricate typefaces and playful designs, the original author designed the pages in such a random sequence that the text reads as humorous and strange experimental poetry. Accidental or not, this beautiful book will delight readers with the humour and the beauty of each print.

This edition reproduces all 102 pages of the original book. It includes essays by Steven Heller and Ester K Smith.
