Details

From the first ‘roman’ type cut by Nicolas Jenson in the 1470s to a 21st-century typeface inspired by Gutenberg’s original ‘blackletter’ font, this typographic reference demonstrates the development of letterforms from hand-cut metal punches to fonts designed for setting by linotype and phototype machines and modern digital software. The history and development of each typeface is given and key letters are illustrated and annotated to identify notable characteristics.
