Russian ‘Printing Art’ Magazine from 1902 and a Selection of Bookplates

I planned to upload some English-language book this time. However, I stumbled upon an article about bookplates in the April’1902 issue of the Russian magazine “Печатное искусство” (Printing Art,) and decided I have to share it.

Here are some of these ex-libris:

Softcover, 1902, 47pp.; illustrations. Issue 7 of the first year of publication. The magazine was running for two years: from late 1901 until 1903. The issue includes articles about bookplates, lithographic printing, studying printing, news, new patents, and more.

Please find other issues here.

As usual, the book is already available to our patrons at Patreon with pledges of $5 per month or more. Or you can buy this book separately on our Issuu page. The text is OCRed, so you can use automatic translation if you’d like to read it.
