Notes: "Franciszka Themerson, artist and illustrator, and partner in Gaberbocchus Press in London created the first specially-drawn device for H. Richard Archer's Hippogryph Press. There are two versions of the Themerson Hippogryph, one in an "angry" mood, and the other, shown here, in a "happy" frame of mind." © James Lamar Weygand
