Product description

Book Description

Knowledge of typefaces continues to be integral to publishers, printers, typographers and anyone interested in graphic design. It has continued to evolve and add to its historical relevance.


This is the definitive desktop reference guide for anyone concerned with type faces. For printers, typographers, graphic designers, publishers, desktop publishers and website designers, or anyone interested in the right typographic finish, this collection is invaluable. With over 2,000 type faces arranged alphabetically and into three sections - Romans, Lineales and Scripts - this is the most accessible and easy-to-use edition yet. Each entry includes a specimen setting, the original founder or manufacturer, as well as the date of introduction. This book contains typefaces essential for practical use as well as the historical importance of them. Established and classic typefaces, unique qualities and applications - it's all here. Updated with new corrections by the author, this is the most comprehensive edition ever of "Encyclopaedia of Typefaces". The guide is 'the standard work of reference' ("The British Printer") and has continued to assert itself as the 'best international catalogue of typefaces which we have ever seen' ("International Bulletin").
