the travelers guide

from death to life. this is the cover of an old book i found several years ago. it dates to the late 1800's and is all hand set type letterpress. the cover is beautiful and textured which adds to the mystique of the title. it is pocket size so that you could carry it everywhere. great handmade typography and very modern for the era. gotta love it.
