Originally published in 1961, this survey of the history of type design covers the changes which occurred over five centuries, (exemplified by the ways in which the great printer-publishers used types) reflecting often radically different approaches to the dissemination of texts. It describes types created by designers such as Baskerville, Bodom, Caslon, Morison and Goudy.
