Into Print: Selected Writings on Printing History, Typography and Book Production


John Dreyfus succeeded Stanley Morison as typographic advisor to both the Cambridge University Press and British Monotype Corporation. Indeed, his first published article was a survey of Stanley Morison’s work as a typographer (1947). He would go on to collaborate with, and write about, Bert Clarke, Saul Marks, Hermann Zapf, Giovanni Mardersteig, and most of the other major typographers of his time. He was also a founding member of the Association Typographique International (ATypI), an organization established to secure copyright protection for typeface designs (ATypI has been, alas, unsuccessful in attaining that goal).
