THE ORIGIN OF THE SERIF, BRUSH WRITING & ROMAN LETTERS.
by Catich, Edward M.
Second edition, edited by Mary W. Gilroy. Catich, a specialist in brush writing, has formed a belief that Roman letters that were carved in stone a couple of thousand years ago were actually brushed on the stone before carving. So, in his opinion, the brush was the instrument which influenced the structure of the letters, and not the chisel. He also dispels other beliefs about the alphabet. Well illustrated throughout. A fascinating read.
