Type: The Secret History of LettersIf you've ever regarded exactly what a Zapf is, or if Baskerville has anything to do with Sherlock Holmes, Kind is the reaction to these problems and more. This is the story of the passions, and obsessions of the developer of type; of the effects of disputes, persecution, and government problems, and the effects of organization and technological improvements on typefaces and typography. From Gutenberg's first authentic type to the On the internet, Simon Loxley shows the actions behind the figures, offering guests a group history in contrast to any other. After learning Kind, guests will never look at the printed phrase in the same way again.
