The Los Angeles-based Colby Poster Printing Company has been a friend to local artists ever since Ed Ruscha's seminal Colby-printed announcement for the 1962 Pasadena Art Museum exhibition New Paintings of Common Objects. Their fluorescent posters have been disseminated on every high-traffic surface across the city, and their collection of over 150 wood and metal typefaces have remained an integral part of Los Angeles' visual aesthetic. This book is a unique tribute to Colby and the visual and cultural impact it continues to hold today.
