    Typographische Vereinigung Leipzig, III. Stiftungs-Fest

    König-Antiqua and Jenson Old Style* in use for announcements/invitations (or program booklets?) for the second, third, and fourth Stiftungsfest, a biennial anniversary celebration of the Typographische Vereinigung Leipzig. This typographic association was founded on 23 March 1904.

    Reproduced in Typographische Mitteilungen, Vol. 11, No. 8, August 1914.

    *) The font in use is likely one of the German versions of this American copy of William Morris’s Golden Type, like Antike Elzevir (D. Stempel AG) or Elzevir (Bauersche Gießerei).
