Typophiles Monograph New Series #20. Known throughout the world of typography, Abe Lerner was a highly respected and talented typographer/book designer with links to the likes of the great Bruce Rogers. With a meticulous eye for detail and clean design, he was constantly working on new projects. With a career that landed him as the Director of Design and Production at Macmillan, President of the Typophiles, and lecturer at the Grolier Club in New York, Abe Lerner was certainly one of our finest typographic designers of the 20th century. Published as a tribute to this great typographer/book designer, this monograph is made up of nine short, nostalgic stories written about the man by friends and colleagues alike. They include Kit Currie, Ronald Gordon, Howard Gralla, Jonathan Hill, Eric Holzenberg, Roland Hoover, Martin Hunter, Herbert Johnson and Jerry Kelly. Also included is a poem written by Kenneth Auchincloss for a dinner honoring Abe Lerner at the Grolier Club, September 16, 1993. Distributed for the Typophiles.
