This anthology of key writing about the typographic arts has been assembled by Ruari McLean, himself a designer and a leading writer on graphic design subjects.Brought together for the first time in a single volume, the writing is drawn from an international array of books and periodicals, and have been selected for their expression of something “important, interesting and/or amusing about typography.” 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 in the 20th 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. A fascinating and often amusing collection, Typographers on Type will prove invaluable to those with an interest in the principles and development of typography in the 20th century. 30 illustrations
