"These essays provide a view of the development of modern typography and cover a diverse range of subjects reflecting concerns of the time and timeless considerations: from William Morris's 'Aims in Founding the Kelmscott Press' (1895) to Roderick Stinehour's 'Computers and Printing' (1984). Arranged in chronological order, the essays chart the course of the profound technological advances that have taken place in the printing industry this century from a unique perspective: that of the typographer witnessing and experiencing these changes." "Each piece is prefaced by a short introduction to the typographer's life and work, and many are illustrated with examples of the typography."--Jacket

How typography happens by Ruari McLean( Book )

11 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 312 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Is typography an art or a science? The gradual tendency of the word 'typography' to mean 'typographic design', and the emergence of the typographer as a professional in his own right, form the subject of this stimulating book. Looking at the work of many well-known practitioners in England, Germany, France and the USA, Ruari McLean examines the development of typography, starting in the seventeenth century with the Mechanick Exercises of Joseph Moxon, progressing to the influences and work of the great German typographer Jan Tschichold and his contemporaries. Based on the Sandars Lectures given by the author at the University of Cambridge, How Typography Happens is well illustrated with unusual and significant images, mostly unfamiliar. It is a useful and important account that will appeal to anyone interested in the graphic arts and the history of the book. Book jacket."--BOOK JACKET
