9781581150698: Design Connoisseur: An Eclectic Collection of Imagery and Type

Exquisite graphic design artifacts make up this unusual collection culled from the pages of type and typography books spanning four vintage decades. Dating from 1900 to 1940, most of the rare type specimens, layouts, marks, and decorations from the period have never been reprinted before, and will serve as inspiration and resource for practicing design professionals, students, and teachers of graphic design. The rich quality of the black-and-white reproductions will allow designers to scan and use the designs in their own work.
