Bruce Rogers: An ornamental printer

Warde’s book contains numerous illustrations and specimens that showcase Rogers’s work over the first quarter of the twentieth century.

From the MTSU Department of Art and Design
Historical and Teaching Collection.

Below are some examples from the book, especially images that show off Rogers’s genius with printers’ ornaments.

Bruce Rogers still had over 30 years of his career left at the time this book was published. Some of his most important books were still to come, including his edition of Thomas More’s Utopia (1934) and his World Bible (1949).
