(Preface) 'The reference book Typography - when who how provides a comprehensive survey of the entire alphabetic culture. It chronicles in detail the story of typographic style and mode - starting with the present day and going back to the origins. The main section presents over 700 typographers, type designers, calligraphers, designers and artists, as well as schools, institutions, teachers and theorists, who have left their distinctive mark on typography. The final chapter describes the development of the tools - from the hand-ax to the computer - in the context of diverse typographical techniques. Over 2,000 illustrations in this book graphically show that typography plays an influential role in society and make it a dictionary of the designed word.'
