Originally published in 1961, this survey of the history of type design covers the changes which occurred over five centuries, (exemplified by the ways in which the great printer-publishers used types) reflecting often radically different approaches to the dissemination of texts. It describes types created by designers such as Baskerville, Bodom, Caslon, Morison and Goudy. In addition to the text, the book has been enhanced by many illustrations chosen from items in the collections of the British Library and the St Bride Foundation Printing Library. It should be of interest to typographers, graphic designers and printing historians.
