First edition; Noted English typographer, Ruari McLean discusses the evolution of typography as an art form. Looking at the work of other well known typographers in England, Europe and America, the author examines the development of typography, starting in the 17th century with Moxon's Mechanick Exercises and progresses to the work of Jan Tschichold and his contemporaries. Loosely inserted in a commorative bookplate of William Sihler.
