Laurence King, 2001 - Graphic arts - 144 pages
The magazine Typographica -- brainchild of Herbert Spencer -- had a brief life, a total of 32 issues published between 1949 and 1967. But its influence stretched far beyond its modest print runs. Rick Poynor recreates the excitement of Typographica in this carefully researched and beautifully illustrated book. Copyright Libri GmbH. All rights reserved.
