HISTORICAL TYPES FROM GUTENBERG TO ASHENDENE

A while ago, CHICC carried out some interesting digitsation work of the Rylands copy of the Mainz Psalter, and a Gutenberg Indulgence for book which is now available.

Stan Knight has now published HISTORICAL TYPES, from Gutenberg to Ashendene, which is available from Oak Knoll here.

From Oak Knoll: “Historical Types stands a step above other books on the history of type because of the size and quality of its reproductions and its straightforward and clear exposition. For these reasons, it should soon become a favorite text for teachers and students of type design, as well as anyone interested in the history of the book.”
