Chicago Ephemera

John Calhoun

Letter G

The Spurius Press was started as a means of providing information on typographic issues that were important to me. It currently exists as a letterpress publishing venture (one title to date: Five American Type Designers) and an internet presence.

Chicago Ephemera is an ongoing collection of typographic materials and ephemera involving Chicago people and institutions.

John Calhoun was the first printer and founder of the first newspaper in Chicago.

Robert Wiebking was an important figure in typography whose contribution has gone largely unrecognized.

letter G is the only character of the Roman alphabet to have a known designer. And our favorite character.
