Description:
At nearly 600 pages and featuring 2,000 illustrations of work by 700 typographers, Typography is by far the most comprehensive book on type ever published. Written by typographers Friedrich Friedl, Nicolaus Ott, and Bernard Stein, this encyclopedic work is packed with full color illustrations of type in use—from book spreads and book covers to posters and corporate identities. It covers every significant typeface, style, designer, and movement, along with the most important type foundries, publications, teachers and schools. There is also a handy section on tools, a useful bibliography, and a thorough index. It’s the perfect book to (carefully) pull down off the shelf when you need some typographic inspiration.
