This book is the long-awaited successor to the classic An Atlas of Typeforms, the great visually-led history of type that Alan Bartram and James Sutton produced in 1968. Because current design methods do not require the drawing and tracing of letterforms in order to produce layouts, we have lost our close connection with them. But an entirely new feature is the author's attempt to place the types in their historical context. 128 pp.
