Curator Jerry Kelly has written that "The presswork, composition and design of this shop rose to the pinnacle of modern printing art, just as the work of Officina Bodoni [founded by Giovanni Mardersteig] set the standard for hand press printing." Designed and printed by Martino Mardersteig at the Stamperia Valdonega in an edition of 800 copies for the Grolier Club.
