Synopsis

Here is a lively and lighthearted survey that looks at the role that old and classic fonts - from letterpress to slab serifs and beyond - play in contemporary graphic design. Written and compiled by the world's leading graphic-design historian, the book provides hundreds of examples, as well as informed texts that will entertain, edify and inspire a new generation of students and practitioners to appreciate that the past contains typographic riches for the future.
