Notes: "Down in the basement of the Art Institute of Chicago, George C. Domke maintains a press (a 10x15 hand fed platen) which, while not a strictly private one, is operated in the spirit of the private press fraternity. His device is a caricature of the printer by Ervine A. Metzl, with lettering by Joseph Carter." © James Lamar Weygand
