Reader's note

This classic book on typography by Oliver Simon, editor of 'Signature' and chairman of The Curwen Press from 1936 - 1956, has been in great demand since it was first published in 1945. It was revised by the author for a Pelican edition in 1954 and it has been revised again by David Bland. Several radical alterations have been made in this edition such as the addition of Linotype and Intertype faces which were excluded by Oliver Simon. The possible effect of new processes like film setting on typography has been touched on and many new examples of book types, display types, title pages and binding designs have been included. This excellent book is the perfect gift for anyone interested in this history of art.
