Editorial Reviews

Booknews
New edition of a text that presents a complete overview of the field of typography, from the origins of the alphabet through contemporary design. Rather than overwhelming the student with an infinite number of existing typefaces, it thoroughly examines Garamond, Baskerville, Bodoni, Century Expanded, and Helvetica, each of which represents an important stage in the evolution of typography and is widely used today. Fully illustrated in b&w. Spiral binding. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknew.com)
