Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Exquisite book. Beautifully designed, with excellent explanatory photographs of techniques, demonstrations, applications, and examples. Highest quality paper supports the photography and graphics. Professional writing, both in elucidating the nuances of lettering and production, and in providing rich historical context, is clear and consistent throughout. Highly recommend. Prof. Bill Ronalds, Department of Art & Design, St. John's University, New York.
