Essay on Typography An
This is a new book. Condition: Brand New.
Arguing that 'a good piece of lettering is as beautiful a thing to see as any sculpture or painted picture', Eric Gill's opinionated manifesto on typography's place in culture is also a moral treatise celebrating the role of craftsmanship in an industrial age. Gill, a sculptor, engraver, printmaker and creator of many classic typefaces that can be seen around us today, fused art, history and polemic in this visionary work which has been hugely influential on modern graphic design.
How do we see the world around us? This is one of a number of pivotal works by creative thinkers whose writings on art, design and the media have changed our vision for ever.
'His lettering was clear, confident and hugely influential on the development of modern type design. The world has now caught up with Gill.' Guardian
