'Derek Birdsall has been described as the doyen of British book designers. He studied typography at Central School (now Central Saint Martins) under Anthony Froshaug, from which he 'learned to love type and the feeling of privilege in placing it on the page, wherever it was happiest and made most sense.'
This practical, inspirational and educational book distills a lifetime's experience in designing books, and presents and discusses nearly fifty books he has designed, showing 360 spreads and covers, all in their original colours and to scale.'
