4.0 out of 5 stars Encyclopedic, 600pp, color illus of entries every page, August 23, 1998
By A Customer
This review is from: Typography (Hardcover)
Bought my 7lb copy in Sydney in July. Brief sketches of type designers, foundries, graphics designers--largely European (but plenty of Americans). In Engl/Fr/Ger. Illus on every page of entities on the page, mostly in color: Typeface (mostly metal) alphabets, type layouts, graphic designs. Entries are usually a couple of pghs, but F.W.Goudy entry, for example, lists most of his type designs. A typography fancier with a good set of reference books will find little new about the Goudys, Gutenbergs, Zapfs and Bodonis, but will find useful notes not generally available elsewhere, particularly on graphics designers and digital typeface designers, and, for instance, an entry on Eckehart SchumacherGabler and his Leipzig project. GREAT VALUE for the money.
