More Art and Type With Clarke and Goudy

To close out the week - one with entirely too much time spent feeding two woodstoves - here is another classic example of the artistic talents of Rene Clarke and Frederic Goudy. Not being an artist, or anything approaching one, I am astounded by Clarke's ability to shift gears from the dramatic Chinese Bank Notes to this much more subtle image of the First Post Office. Goudy, of course, just continues to transform pages of copy with his brilliant typography.
