Rude Humor

I've just spent the weekend at the Hamilton Wood Type Museum. More on that later, but because it's been a long day driving across Wisconsin, for today I'll just share this page from the William Page specimen book of chromatic type:

Victorian-era printed page in blue, green and black reading RECOUNT HUMOR RUDE
It's amazing how this little bit of 1874 manages to combine printing with current Minnesota politics, all on one beautiful page.

Some days it's hard to be a Minnesotan.

Ha! Pretty funny. I look forward to learning more about the type museum.
