Synopsis: This study of typography traces the development of type design over the past five centuries, and discusses the lessons they hold for today's designers. The 367 illustrations reproduce selected pages from rare and beautiful books. The accompanying text examines the historical and artistic significance of these specimens, which represent the best work of printers and type founders from Gutenberg to Bruce Rogers. The two original books are here reproduced in one huge volume of over 1000 pages. This work should belong in the library of a typographer or those interested in printing history.

Book Description Oak Knoll Press, New Castle, 2001. Softcover. Book Condition: New. Reprint Edition.. 1088 pages. Softcover. New book. GRAPHIC ARTS. This extraordinary work explores the art of typography from the dawn of printing to th twentieth century. By tracing the development of type design, Updike discusses the importance of each historic period and the lessons they contain for today's designers. The original two-volume set has been combined into one book containing the original 367 typographical illustrations selected from rare and beautiful books.Updike's well-written text constitutes a running commentary on the historical and artistic significance of these illustrations, which exemplify the best work of printers and type founders from Gutenberg to Bruce Rogers. In Volume I, Mr. Updike discusses the Latin alphabet, the invention of printing, the cutting and casting of types, 15th-century types in Germany, France, Spain, and England as well as German, Italian and French types of 16th, 17th and 18th centuries. Volume II continues the discussion of types to the beginning of the 19th century and then describes American types and 19th-century types in general. The closing chapters on choice of type and the industrial conditions of the past and their relationship to problems printers face are very informative. (Key Words: Typography, Daniel Berkeley Updike, Graphic Arts, Printing, Type Design, Bruce Rogers, Gutenberg). book. Bookseller Inventory # 35132X3
