Alphabets and Signs

Ed. Julian Rothenstein, Mel Gooding

Including early infographics, hand-drawn for the Paris Exhibition in 1900, signwriters' alphabets and Italian cigarette packet designs, this volume demonstrates the radical experiment and innovation undertaken in type design and layout in the early to mid 20th century. This most recent edition of the designer's source book contains examples of creative lettering from around the world, drawn from printers' specimen books, posters and modernist publications.
