    Launched around 1965, Domus Danica was a sales label offering products from seven Danish furniture manufacturers. The ‘M’ was modified from Optima’s splayed form to better fit the circle layout.

      Victor, the line in Courier is not part of the original ads, but a digital watermark included to designate the origin of the file.

      I think Victor was jokin’. I wish would allow use of their images without the big fat watermark, but I guess too many have posted without credit and a link to the source. A great source it is, nonetheless!
