A heavyweight guide to the evolution of fonts. Magnificently & exhaustively illustrated an indispensable reference for the graphic artist or historian. The books are stiff-paperback, pretty heavy & need a bookshelf at least 13" high. Buy them & give yourself an eye-popping window into printing and a hernia.

Excellent book. Well designed and superbly presented. It is lovely to hold and much better than an e edition. Some things just have to still be in book form and this is one of them.
