Notes: "Theodor Jung choose the Cloverleaf as his device because to him it symbolized the things from his press: small, but well-designed and comely. Moreover, it signified the Christian Trinity, appropriate for one who considered himself a Christian craftsman. Finally, it also stood for the philosophical trinity: truth, goodness and beauty." © James Lamar Weygand
