More Description

During his long career Stanley Morison held appointments as typographical adviser to Cambridge University Press, to the Monotype Corporation, and to The Times, where he was responsible both for its radical new design in 1932 and for the standard history of the paper. These two volumes bring together the majority of his most lasting essays. Many of them, pioneering in their day, are now classics in their field. The collection, first published in 1980, spans a period of forty years. It includes essays on letter-forms in manuscript and in print, beginning with those published in The Flueron in the 1920s, on typefaces in sixteenth-century Italy, on the development of Latin script, on the history of learned presses and on the typography of newspapers.
