This classic book will inform the layman and delight the typophile. Here is the history of printing from the earliest alphabets, through the evolution of the printing press, the contributions of great printers and typographers, and twentieth century graphic technology. A new chapter by Robert Bringhurst takes up this short history where Chappell leaves off, covering the most recent developments in the printed word. Over 200 illustrations, appear throughout this lively narrative.
