NY: Advertising Agencies' Service, 1925-1927, 1931, 1933, 1946-1951, 1953-1955. Broadsides (mostly) ranging in size from 7 1/2 x 10 to 12 x 19. There are two copies of "Joyous Banner" --a fine copy still in its printed mailing envelope and a faded displayed copy that is signed by Schiller. The 1927 type picture of a church is chipped in the margins; but that would be covered by a mat. Good to very group. Item #11683
Schiller's type pictures were created from thousands of individual pieces of metal type and ornaments. His images ranged from decorative borders to complex scenes to portraits of fellow typographers such as Beatrice Warde and Bruce Rogers. (Schiller blamed his obsession with manipulating type on BR.) These art works are signed in the design with with his initials. The scenes here include the first Christmas in Bethlehem, 2 cosy room interiors, and 2 New York city scenes (Broadway and "Peace Plaza"). Schiller was art director of Advertising Agencies' Service Company from 1924 to 1959. His creative type pictures were famous and were widely exhibited.
