Miniature ONZE VADER, printed by NV Lettergieterij ‘Amsterdam’ vh N. Tetterode, c. 1950. The text of ‘Our father …’ is engraved on the surface (3,76 x 3,76 mm) of a 10 point punch, also present here. The text on the punch, as well as the printed text, can only be read by means of a strong magnifying glass. It was an incredible achievement and it is said that the typographers who engraved the text worked at night, so that the building where they worked was not shaken by passing trams. The text consists of 400 letters, space and punctuation marks included.
