Summary "The earliest formuation of the letters of the alphabet to recent developments in twentieth-century graphic technology, are made clear through a lucid and lively narrive interspersed with more than 200 pertinent illustrations ... Here is the evolution of the printing press ... the great printers and the art of the inspired typographers ... and always the interaction between printing and the society and culture in which it grew is underlined"--Cover.
