Inhaltsangabe: This book serves the practical requirements of all those who are involved in specifying type for books. More than 100 currently available filmset typefaces are displayed in large-format, double-page specimen settings, in several different sizes and spacings, showing also display sizes bold, roman, italic, small caps and figures. The authors also provide an introduction, including notes on the technical and visual development of typefaces, a comprehensive "family tree" of types related to their historical models, and a long illustrated essay in which many examples of widely various typographic problems and their solutions (all of relevance to today's book designers) are discussed. The book itself is set in a new Monotype face designed by Michael Harvey. Alan Bartram is a book designer and author of several books on lettering and type, the most recent being "The English Lettering Tradition". James Sutton is a graphic designer. They have previously collaborated on "An Atlas of Typeforms".
Rezension: It is more worthy of a place at the designer's elbow than any other book on the market... The Bookseller
