    “Wenige aber gute Schriften” — “Few but good typefaces. A selection from the most beautiful ones will give those printers who always want to satisfy their clients a decisive superiority in the daily competition. The use of our well-known artist’s typefaces ensures this superiority.”

    “Our typefaces, cut by hand according to good old punchcutter’s custom, for which the best lettering artists provided the drawings, have proved themselves brilliantly in printing fine books. ¶ They lend a special unique expression to each work. ¶ They advertise and help every printer to keep those customers of printed matter who value good form and thoughtful work.”

    “A rich selection of wood type for poster printing. In addition to our type foundry we have taken up the production of poster typefaces in wood. In this department, which operates with the most modern machinery, we produce wood type in sizes up to 60 Cicero of most of our artist’s typeface designs. For this we exclusively use well-dried wood. Use the German typefaces of Rudolf Koch for successful results in artistic poster printing.”
