This large broadside was issued by the Bauer Type Foundry to celebrate their 125th anniversary. It pictures a large tree done in black ink against a gray background with each of the important type faces in the company's history pictured in blocks placed on the branches of the tree. The blocks are printed in various colors with the example of the type face done in black on a white background. The tree begins at the base with Roman capitals and works up to Futura, Benton, Weiss and others. A perfect example of printing to frame and place on your wall. Well preserved copy.
