Certificate Vignette

Reported in The Inland and American printer and lithographer, Volume 17 1896


The insert of the Trow Printing- Company, of New York, in this issue, designed by Mr. E. B. Campbell, the designer for the company, presents some features that are worthy of careful study. The portraits are studies in expression and are adapted from photographs of Mr. Campbell taken while pressing his face against a pane of glass. The design was made by Mr. Campbell for the Trow Company's new booklet. This example of line cut color work, obtained from the artist's colored sketch in such delicate shades without the use of half-tone, will be found difficult enough by anyone who cares to try similar work.

The Trow Directory Printing and Bookbinding Company has a capital stock of $1,500,000, and publishes and prints the New York City Director}', the Business Directory, and the Copartnership Directory. These directories are set up by the latest type machines and are models of typographical neatness and completeness. The printing and bookbinding department is at Nos. 201 to 213 East Twelfth street, New York, and the mailing' and addressing department (the directory part of the plant) is at No. 27 University Place, where a large clerical force is kept constantly busy addressing and compiling. The company prints and binds many of the large magazines: Scribner's, Godey's, the MetaphysicalPhrenological Journal and others. The bookbinding department is especially extensive and is one of the largest free binderies in this country.
