Notes: "Out of Omaha in 1947 came John Dow, one of our most expert printer-typographers. What he did with type, ornaments and white space was original and intriguing, as evidenced by this, one of his many Attic Press devices. But then, just as he hit his stride, he dropped from the sight of the private press fraternity, and his present location cannot be ascertained." © James Lamar Weygand
