“The Album consists of 13 pages relating to The Willem II Cigar Company in Holland, showing photographic plates of the factory and its employees and the history of making Cigars. Then a further 56 pages of stuck in Cigar Bands(Rings).” — Antiques Atlas

I assume the Willem II logo is lettered. The style is similar to Penumbra or Shàngó Gothic.

    Also close, but no cigar: Caflisch’s Columna.

    Interesting that the left quotation marks on “bands” and “rings” are backwards—is that a mistake, or is it possible those were styled that way intentionally?

    While the Dutch typically use ‘single’ or “double” English-style quotes, one can still find the old „low-high” form. The ”backwards” style is rare, but acceptable, according to Friedrich Forssman’s Detailtypografie.
