Franklin Booth illustration (1940)
This illustration by Franklin Booth is scanned from the book, Mimeograph Illustration Inset Portfolio: Drawings by Foremost Artists on Stencils Ready For Printing
, published by the A.B. Dick Company (Chicago) in 1940. Customers could order "Mimeograph Photochemical Stencil Insets" from this loose-leaf catalog of images, and these could be inserted into stencils, as explained: "A sharp knife or razor blade and adhesive Mimeograph Cement is all that is necessary for applying insets to stencils." The catalog itself was mimeographed, as noted: "This book in its entirety has been printed from photochemical stencils."
