These Mabel and Co cards and boxes are hand letterpress printed on a treadle-powered press, built around 1860 and, following restoration, still going strong some 160 years later.
These small but perfectly formed greeting cards are typeset in Futura, a typeface created between 1924 and 1927 by German designer Paul Renner. Strongly reflecting the Bauhaus influence of the time, it nevertheless is still widely used for print and digital design today over 90 years later.
