Gould Library

This is one of a series of small exhibition catalogues published by the Paris gallery, Berggruen & Cie.. Beginning in 1952, the gallery produced slim, beautifully printed books like this one for more than 100 exhibitions.  The illustration you see here, an image of a painting by Paul Klee, was printed at Studio Jacomet, a print shop famous for its high-quality pochoir prints (pochoir is a hand printing technique that uses a series of complex stencils to produce a finely detailed image.)
