Since the advent of movable type and the printing press, humans have been dreaming up new ways to represent the letters that make up our languages. Type. A Visual History of Typefaces & Graphic Styles celebrates this rich tradition. Based upon a Dutch collection, it's split into two parts, with the first section covering pre-20th-century typefaces, and the second dealing with more modern specimens. Roman, italic, bold, or light, created by Caslon, Gill, Behrens, or Frutiger, this book covers them all, making it a great resource for designers and entertaining reading for anyone interested in the history of the written word.
