Rare Book Feast

Rare Book Feast is about the timeless character of books. In this digital age it is hard to remember just how hard it was to produce these printed works of art.

The first in this series is the World Geo-Graphic Atlas(1953) designed by Herbert Bayer with Martin Rosenzweig, Henry Gardiner and Masato Nakagawa: 2,200 diagrams, graphs, charts, symbols spanning 368 pages about our planet earth. All done before computers.
