This long awaited new book from Stan Knight is now in stock and available.
Historical Types begins
in 1454 with Gutenberg's experiments with moveable type and reaches as far as the Fine Press movement at the beginning
of the twentieth century. Every historical example shown in the survey is the result of hand-engraved punches, hand-set type,
and pages hand-printed sheet by sheet.
The book explores every major development in the design of type and includes
some (previously) lesser-known designers whose type designs made significant contributions to the craft. The material is divided
into sections by historical period and assigned category numbers for easy reference.
