Handbook of Type and Lettering.

This book is written by a designer/calligrapher who teaches at the School for Graphics and Book Art in Leipzig, Germany. Recently translated from its 1986 publication in Germany, the book leads the reader through aspects of the design, use and evaluation of lettering as practiced by graphic artists, architects, art educators and interested amateurs. Whether used as a workbook for beginning calligraphers, or as a resource of typefaces and letter forms, there is great usability in the numerous alphabets presented; the instructional tips for forming letters and words; and the information about poster design, graphic design procedures and historic background of letter design. Recommended for use at high school and college levels.
