Jan Tschichold, Ben Rosen. Anyone who works with type should find this facsimile of Tschichold's work of interest.

Every alphabet was specially arranged by Tschichold, and forms a well-balanced graphic design. Many of the outstanding historical sources appear better here than in the often poorly printed originals.

This is a sourcebook of the most beautiful type of letters, as selected by the author, as well as a discussion of lettering as a work of art, good and bad letters, the use of capital and lower case letters, word and line spacing, the selection of appropriate letter styles, and the layout of letters and signs.

Collecting work by Jan Tschichold to sharpen up your typography and book layout skills? This book is a welcome companion to his other works such as the comprehensive The Form of the Book: Essays on the Morality of Good Design (Classic Typography Series) and the classic By Jan Tschichold - The New Typography (Weimar and Now: German Cultural Criticism) (1998-12-15) [Paperback]. If you don't already know, Jan Tschichold holds very opinionated views on typography and bookmaking. However, he supports his views in this text by explaining his points and then illustrating them in detail--over half of the book contains beautiful examples of typography. While The Form of the Book: Essays on the Morality of Good Design (Classic Typography Series) is more in-depth about his points, this book is very illustrative, perhaps making it the more immediately useful of the two for designers and those working with type. Great addition to a bookshelf with Tschichold's other work, but also great for the designer looking for prescriptive advice about typography. The hardback version is recommended as it will be easier to hold, read, and use as a reference guide.

Such a beautiful collection of letters from a great designer. A must have for reference and should be on every designers bookshelf. I use it for inspiration occasionally for hand lettering scripts and ornamental caps.

Many years ago I borrowed this book from a research library. And in the next few days, I couldn't put it down. I found this book very informative. It opened a door to the art of calligraphy and lettering to me. This book is composed of two parts. The first of it are some articles explaining the evolution of various kinds of calligraphy and lettering crafts. The second part, examples of these artworks. If you love typography, caligraphy or fine arts as a general, you will love this book.
If you are interested in the history of typography, this book can also be very helpful to you as it provides you with a firm background of very needed knowledge.
I hope there will be another book like this one that stress the mechanical part of lettering. How different tools, say broad-tip pens, brushes, chisels, counterpunches, affect the shape of letters.
