Know your type: A visual history of fonts and graphic styles: 1628-1938 This book offers a connoisseur’s overview of typeface design, exploring the most elegant fonts from the history of publishing.

Borders, ornaments, initial letters, and decorations are also included, along with lithographic examples, letters by sign writers, inscription carvers, and calligraphers.
