Limited to 226 copies. This is the first in a new series of occasional publications called Swan & Hoop which documents non-typographic letter forms. This volume focuses on the round gothic capital in Padua, Italy. Written, illustrated and printed letterpress in eight colors by Maret. It features a visual glossary of variant letter forms, a detailed structural analysis of round gothic, and a quire of photographic plates. This is also the first use of Russell Maret's new Baskerville typeface. Included is a letterpress printed announcement of the series which is a little larger than the publication, and a prospectus card for the book itself.
