Type: A Visual History of Typefaces and Graphic Styles, Vol. 1

I bought this book for a friend and then decided I needed a copy for myself. Not unlike The Handy Book of Artistic Printing which I posted about a little while back, this book is full of gorgeous examples of decorative typefaces and printer’s ornaments. This massive first volume, they are coming out with a second volume, has so much inspiring type design you might drool while turning the pages. The best part is the book comes with a keycard with a code, which gains you access to over 1000 high res scans of the specimens found in the book- such a great perk to having the printed version.
