The Composing Room was a type-setting firm founded in 1927 by Dr. Robert Leslie and Sol Cantor.  The firm became the sponsor for a variety of projects, publications, and exhibitions on graphic art and design.  Leslie was a mentor to many émigré designers in New York.

"Corinthian" paper is from Albers's notes (undated addition to Albers 1945).
