Caption:
Estate auction ephemera might seem to be the pedestrian documentation of buying and selling, but it also represents an untapped resource for understanding how printers used type to attract customers' visual sensibilities and pocketbooks. This example by the dynastic firm, Paul Brothers of 77 High Street, clearly demonstrates their stock in house as well as their compositing skill. Single lines of ornamented display faces are exuberantly set in a feast of variegated typography.
