Rosemary Sassoon

Rosemary Sassoon was born in 1931 and studied design and writing. She later developed methods and models for teaching writing to children. These efforts earned her a Ph.D. from the University of Reading in the area of typography and graphic communication. Her work eventually led to the Sassoon font family, which is meant to facilitate reading for children. The technical work on this family took place in collaboration with Adrian Williams from Club Type.
