About: This profusely illustrated two-volume work retrieves and re-presents the English typographer Anthony Froshaug (1920–84): what he made, his ideas, his life.
"Presents the work and life of this essential typographer, until now too little known outside the circle of his friends and students. Froshaug was a deep and charismatic thinker-practitioner, whose insights return us to the fundamentals of typography. The book consists of two interacting volumes: the solid record of the work is placed against the contingencies of the life. A traditional monograph is unsettled by an exploration in documentary."
