Perfect for grocery or to-do lists, this magnetic note pad features a fraktur of religious text. The heavily pooled pigment and the crystalline appearance of this fraktur are typical of artist Samuel Gottschall's work. A Mennonite schoolmaster, Gottschall taught during the 1830s in a Franconia Township, Montgomery County schoolhouse built on land owned by his family.
Franconia Township, Montgomery County, Pennsylvania; 1833
