4.0 out of 5 stars Interesting
An interesting selection of display type faces to use as is or to modify.
Clear full page layout of each style means the characters are easily transferable via tracing, camera or pantograph to a working scale.
A useful reference book.

I had been looking for some Western or traditional Circus letterforms and this is just what I was searching for. Good old Dover books!

4.0 out of 5 stars Misleading title, 20 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Circus Alphabets (Lettering, Calligraphy, Typography) (Paperback)
Going by the title and cover I presumed the contents would have been the same fonts as found on old circus posters. They are not, many are similar in style and some would never have been used such as Monster, Teardrop and Tokyo. If you are looking for a font equal to that found on wood type as in a Hamilton catalogue for example you won't find it here.
The content is black on white so there is no indication as to what chromatic fonts such as Houdini and Frolic would look like in print.
This is ok as a reference for a style of fount only.
