I’ve referred to this 1920 advertisement many times in talks and articles, and often wondered who WDT, the illustrator, was (the initials are at bottom right).
Then recently I came across a profile of Walter Dorwin Teague, arguably the industrial designer most influential in establishing Modern design in the US. Following up on wiki, I discovered that in the 1920s historicist frames like this were known as Teague Borders.
Did Teague also create the layout and spec the type?
Is this sort of post appropriate to Type Drawers?
