Only semldom are embossers used as library stamp. Only special collections (e.g. grey literature, brochures or historic book) get them ofter. But this embosser is used on a “normal” book from the collection of the library of the University of Applied Science in Rapperswil, Switzerland. The style is quite simple, a circle, built from the name of the institution (“Hochschule Rapperswil”) and the word “Bibliothek”, library, in bold. Notice that “library” is situated more prominent that evrything else. The middle of the circle is an open book, symbol for the library. While both, the institution and the library, itself try to present a modern and innovative image, this stamp seems a call from the past (or, in another reading, foundation of academic institutions and libraries). It is astonishingly stylish.
