"Artistic Hebrew Type"
This is mon petite 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 erliest 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.
