The article looks on the calligraphy works of American artist Raymond F. Daboll. Daboll's interest in calligraphy started when he attended an informal calligraphy class at the Newberry Library in Chicago, Illinois. Since 1929, Daboll has done projects for several advertising agencies, publishers and printers. "Calligraphy's Flowering, Decay and Restauration" and "The Book of Oz Cooper" are books designed by Daboll which were included in the American Institute of Graphic Arts' Fifty Books of the Year.
