Notes: "The original pressmark for Norman Forgue's Black Cat Press was drawn by Calvin Brazelton and was used in the first prosepectus of the press in 1933. Despite the 18 variations drawn by such artists as Dale Nichols, Bill Fleming, Douglas Rader and Elmer Jacobs, the one that is shown here is the one most used." © James Lamar Weygand
