The North Tower of the Chester Fritz Library:
There are six carved limestone panels gracing the tower entrance of the library. They were designed in 1960 by Robert A. Nelson, Chairman of the UND Art Department, 1960-1972, based on suggestions from Donald Pearce, then University Librarian.
Five of the panels represent stylized printer’s marks, or colophons:
Upper left — William Caxton’s printer’s mark. England. 15th century.
Upper center — The golden compasses of Christopher Plantin. Holland. 16th century.
Upper right — The bough & shields of Johann Fust and Peter Schöffer. Germany. 15th century.
Lower center — The orb & cross of Lorraine of Nicholas Jenson. France. 15th century.
Lower right — The anchor & dolphin of Aldus Manutius. Venice. 16th century.
The sixth panel [lower left] depicts a quill pen, ink well, scroll, and the letter “B”, which was the most commonly illuminated letter.
