This book is well worth reading at any time to give you a clear and very interesting history of writing, lettering and printing. A superb study well written and very helpful to any reader and I can only thoroughly recommend it to anyone. This book may help you look at all lettering in a different light!

I was most interested in the documents at the back of the book. It had excerpts from sub subjects from written communication by different authors. I would recommend it in your library collection

This is a beautifully presented book with glossy pages and incredible pictures. I bought it as a classroom resource but the book is A5 size so the photos are too small to use in group activites but fine for individual research.
