Hans Eduard Meier: The Development of Script and Type

Sometimes we’re cataloguing items for sale and come across a book that makes us stop. “Um. Why are we not keeping this?” That’s what happened just now. (Why are we selling this? Rent’s due on the first.) In its forty-eight pages it’s got a pretty thorough (and beautiful) history of letterforms in the West. This is perfect for students—or students smart enough to tell their professors to buy this so it can be shared in class. (If ”in class” ever becomes a thing again.)
