Ibsen reconstructed

Henrik Ibsen’s collected poems were first printed in 1871. The first edition was, as were most books at the time, set in lead by skilled printers. In 2010, I recreated the first edition in HTML and CSS. The «Steinschrift» and «Elzevir» fonts that were used by the printers in 1871 have not been transferred to the digital domain, but lookalikes were found. The resulting PDF file was printed in 100 copies and bound the old-fashioned way.
