A unique and extraordinary survey 6 Jan. 2002
By Midwest Book Review - Published on
Format: Hardcover
Printing Types: Their History, Forms And Use is a unique and extraordinary survey exploring the art of typography from the very beginnings of printing down to the present day. A printer, scholar, award-winning designer, and teacher, Daniel Updike draws upon his considerable expertise and research to trace the development of type design and comment on the lessons the historic periods of type design have for today's designers. The informative and impressive text is enhanced with 367 typographical illustrations selected from rare and beautiful books down through the history of typography. Highly recommended for both professional and academic reference collections, Daniel Updike's Printing Types is also available as a two volume paperback set.
