This study of typography traces the development of type design over the past five centuries, and discusses the lessons they hold for today's designers. The 367 illustrations reproduce selected pages from rare and beautiful books. The accompanying text examines the historical and artistic significance of these specimens, which represent the best work of printers and type founders from Gutenberg to Bruce Rogers. The two original books are here reproduced in one huge volume of over 1000 pages. This work should belong in the library of a typographer or those interested in printing history.
