Graphicus: Notiziario Grafico, Rivista mensile delle arti della stampa, No. 8–9, August–September, 1935–XIII. R. Scuola per Le Arti Grafiche Vigliardi Paravia, Torino, Italy. 9.5 x 13, pp. 84 plus advertising with Italian text.
This issue devoted to Giambattista Bodoni “in occasione del Terzo Raduno-Concorso Poligrafici Fascisti” includes pp. 24 with text by Terenzio Grandi and is illustrated with a Bodoni woodcut portrait by Ercole Dogliani and twelve black and white facsimile examples.
Also includes “Primo Manifesto sull’Arte della Stampa” (First Manifesto on the Art of Printing) with seventeen declarations printed on pink paper and authored by Giulio da Milano, Ezio D'Errico and Edoardo Orecchia with a fine article “Il Razionalismo nelle Arti Grafiche” about his work. Heavily illustrated with trade advertising featuring studios, printing and typography. A few examples of specialty printing bound-in.
Very good with light handling to the cover corners and some wear to the early and late pages.
