Celebrated for his Baker Signet typeface, Baker is one of the foremost modern calligraphers. This book contains a generous sampling of his calligraphic work-single letters, words, sentences, even experiments with abstract and Oriental calligraphy. Included are over 100 original alphabets from broad and bold, to fine-line designs; from letters with flourishes, to simpler designs and more. 154 plates. Foreword by Tommy Thompson.
