Anatomy of a Typeface

This book describes in great detail the traits and development of the 20th Century’s most popular book faces. Although Lawson does not specifically cover new digital font designs, most of today’s text faces are revisions or expansions of typefaces designed in the pre-computer era. Over a dozen typefaces are critically examined in this masterful tome; this book is a must for any type historian!
