Choice Review

The beauty and power of type design come alive in the 35 essays here reprinted from the "On Type" feature of Fine Print, the respected and admired quarterly "review for the arts of the book." Suggesting the personalities, visions, and efforts that underlie individual typefaces, the 21 authors write with authority on historical, theoretical, and practical aspects of types, type families, and type designers. This handsome collection should open the eyes and expand the minds of anyone concerned with the appearance of words on paper, whether produced by letterpress or by desktop publishing. A fine addition to browsing collections; even libraries subscribing to Fine Print may wish to buy it. Both public and academic collections, lower division and up. E. A. Swaim Wesleyan University
