Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

For over 50 years, Encyclopaedia of Typefaces has been the dominant typeface guide and now the internationally celebrated work is published in a new 55thAnniversary edition.


With over 2,000 type faces arranged alphabetically and into three sections- Romans, Lineales and Scripts- this is the most accessible and easy-to-use edition yet. Each entry includes a specimen setting, the original founder or manufacturer, as well as the date of introduction.

This definitive desktop reference guide is invaluable for historical relevance as well as for modern printers, graphic designers, publishers, typographers and desktop publishers.

About the Author

W. Pincus Jaspert, W. Turner Berry and A.F. Johnson came together to produce the first edition of Encyclopaedia of Type Faces, which was published in 1953.
