Beautiful Copperplate Logos

Late 19th century copperplate prints have always been a fascination for me, the extreme attention to detail is just incomprehensible to me and creates a very distinctive and powerful aesthetic.

This link will take you to a BibliOdyssey page filled to the brim with high resolution scans of finely crafted logotype prints from this era. Revel!
