The Visual History of Type author Paul McNeil selects and dissects his six favourite faces

The Visual History of Type author Paul McNeil selects and dissects his six favourite faces | Research_topic | Scoop.it
Released today (11 September), "_The Visual History of Type_":http://www.laurenceking.com/en/the-visual-history-of-type/ is a definitive survey of the major typefaces produced since the advent of printing, from movable type in the mid-15th century to the present day. Arranged chronologically, more than 320 typefaces are presented in the form of their original type specimens or earliest printings, located in their historical context through brief overviews and descriptions of the key characteristics of each face. Here, rather than attempting to provide a potted version of 500 years of typographic history, _The Visual History of Type’s_ author, Paul McNeil, has selected a few of his current favourites from the book for It's Nice That.
