A Miscellany of Letters

Intro. David Sacks

Originally deriving from pictograms, letter forms have been developed, refined and adapted for myriad uses, from a simple clear typeface for advertising to a decorated animal alphabet for children. This highly illustrated exploration of the history and use of letters begins with an essay detailing the development of the Western alphabet and then, using each letter as a starting point, explores how it has been creatively employed by artists, designers, typographers and publishers.
