Lilly Library Manuscript Collections


The Merrymount Press mss., ca. 1904-1941, consist of in-house press printing order files relating to the production of Christmas cards, bookplates, and advertising ephemera. Included with most of the files are the job tickets for composition and printing with information about paper, type, ink colors, press runs and cost breakdowns; proofs; and in many cases examples of the final product. Thirteen of the twenty-one relate to materials designed by graphic artist and print designer Rudolph Ruzicka, 1883-1978.
