Scripts: Elegant Lettering from Design’s Golden Age

This book is a must-have for anyone who loves beautiful scripty type. It’s full of type specimens, invitations, signage and packaging from the 19th- mid 20th century. All of the images are full bleed and close-up, so much so that you can see the paper texture (or it’s disintegration) and the printing quality at it’s finest. I had the most fun just seeing the old ephemera aside from the type itself. I really like how this book was put together, just literally packed with pretty pictures. Get a copy here.
ps. I think I mentioned yesterday, I just can’t get over how many books Steven Heller authors. His amazon page says over 130! How is it possible? While I’m not a fan of all of them, he does have a big handful of classics. Has anyone worked with him before? I’m just curious about how involved he is with all of these books since he usually has a co-author.
