"To understand the language and development of type is to know its history. Letter Forms is a collection of essays by and about Stanley Morison, adviser to Monotype, and the greatest type historian of our time. An essay by Beatrice Warde is an illuminating introduction to the man referred to as a "typographic firmament." In his own words Morison then relates the history of classifying typographical variations and delves into the literature on the subject of letterforms. Finally, the author uncovers the significance of the discovery of a 16th century manuscript by Horfei in the Vatican Library."--BOOK JACKET
