"Artistic Hebrew Type" p11

type specimen of the redis face.

 

This is mon petit contribution to israeli design students and type lovers worldwide. iv'e scanned (in high resolution) this vintage type specimen called "Hebrew Artistic Type" by l.p. toby, circa 1955.

it's probably one of the earliest type specimen booklet printed in israel (i may be wrong), and is a stunning artifact to find. it's the ultimate example of creation that comes out of a certain void. unlike the rich tradition of the western/eastern type, there weren't many hebrew types, and there was a great demand.

    would you mind if I used this as a background on my business card?
  • Yaron 7y

    Julianne - i don't mind at all, in fact, it's not mine.
    it is a really old book and i scanned it, in order for people around the world would be able to use it.
    good luck!!
    (show me how it came out)
