Gothic and Sans Serif Type, Specimen List No. 15, Landis Art Press, Lancaster, Pa.

Gothic and Sans Serif Type, Specimen List No. 15, Landis Art Press, Lancaster, Pa.
This is an undated specimen list advertising some of the typefaces that David Bachman Landis (1862-1940) used at his letterpress print shop in Lancaster, Pennsylvania. Landis originally named his shop Pluck Art Printery, but this specimen list dates to sometime after 1914, when he changed the name to Landis Art Press.
