Books and Printing: A Treasury for Typophiles
A collection of forty articles, poems, and essays by practitioners of the art of bookmaking. A unique feature of this book is that its articles are set in twenty-two different typefaces; thus it serves as a student's specimen book, affording an interesting comparison of the "color" and body of various composition faces while at the same time supplementing the comments of the typographic experts. More than one hundred illustrations of printers' marks, decorative bookplates, specimen pages, etc., complement the text--From publisher description.
