Designed by WAD and printed at Yale by Carl P Rollins. William Addison Dwiggins (1880 ñ 1956), was an American type designer, calligrapher, and book designer attaining prominence as an illustrator and commercial artist. He brought to the designing of type and books some of the boldness that he displayed in his advertising work, and sometimes using Oriental influences, breaking from the more antiquarian styles of his colleagues and mentors Updike, Cleland and Goudy.
