Product description

These essays provide a view of the development of modern typography and cover a diverse range of subjects reflecting concerns of the time and timeless considerations: from William Morris's 'Aims in Founding the Kelmscott Press' (1895) to Roderick Stinehour's 'Computers and Printing' (1984). Arranged in chronological order, the essays chart the course of the profound technological advances that have taken place in the printing industry this century from a unique perspective: that of the typographer witnessing and experiencing these changes. Each piece is prefaced by a short introduction to the typographer's life and work, and many are illustrated with examples of the typography.
