About:"In recent years the range and uses of letter forms have undergone many interesting changes. For this book a large selection of very varied material, much of it unpublished before, has been gathered together from all over Europe and the USA. Through approximately 300 illustrations and a descriptive, critical text, the editor and his four contributors provide here both a complete review of recent lettering, and an invaluable reference book of styles and techniques. Sheila Waters takes a new and refreshing look at the uses of calligraphy; Christopher Timings, the talented graphic designer, has assembled a comprehensive selection of lettering as used in packaging; Cameron Poulter, an eminent book designer, presents a cross section of display lettering for books, magazines and newspapers; while Ken Garland, late art editor of Design magazine, shows the immense change that has taken place in public lettering."
