P.S.  A colophon is a brief statement containing information about a publication such as the place of publication, the publisher, and the date of publication. A colophon may also be emblematic or pictorial in nature. Colophon’s were formerly printed at the ends of books, but in modern works they are usually located at the verso of the title-leaf.  In modern usage, it can be brief notice at the end of a book usually describing the text typography, identifying the typeface by name along with a brief history. It may also credit the publication’s designer and other persons or companies involved in its production – how we are using it here!
