Historical and great design reference. Every designer who loves typography must have this like a christian needs a bible. You can just open the book to any random spot and enjoy whatever the subject matter.

One of my favorite books on typefaces, this wonderful reproduction gives us the history of wood type's evolution in styles as well as technology. Mr Kelly did a wonderful job in collecting both samples of the lettering as well as the history that goes with them.
My biggest wish was that there was even more samples and information.
A must for any serious font fanatic or history buff.
