About this title


From the back cover: "Rob Roy Kelly covers the nineteenth-century heyday of wood type in the greatest detail. He explains all aspects of design, manufacture, and marketing, traces the evolution of styles, particularly in the United States, and discusses wood type production in relation to other trades - lithography, letterpress, metalplate and wood engraving, sign painting and calligraphy, poster printing and typefounding. Rare photographs and engravings illuminate the textual material. . . More than 600 styles of wood type are classified and annotated, as are more than 100 specimens of complete or partial fonts which are reproduced just as proofed, with all the imperfections to be expected from years of use."
