I SPOTTED THESE EXTREMELY OLD PRINTER’S MARKS ON A VERY INTERESTING site called Bibliodyssey. I selected a variety of marks based on symmetrical designs. Check out the dates on some of these marks. Some of these could make nice tattoos. How cool would it be to have a tattoo based on a design someone made in 1569.
