(Preface) 'This book traces the development of advertising typography from the Bauhaus period to the present. More than a history of our effort to use type to increase sales and communicate ideas, it is a compelling story of the forces that shaped typography and why—and the forces at work today that will determine its future direction. Typographic Directions reveals the thinking behind—and the execution of —the most effective typography of both today and the early 20th century. It is an analysis of typography in all fields...advertising, direct mail, promotion, editorial, book publishing, records, etc. Written by authorities, it also includes the commentary from a series of seminars and lectures sponsored by the Type Directors Club and put together here for the first time.'
