      Printer's Type In The Twentieth Century has just arrived at Oak Knoll!



      The last years of the nineteenth century saw the final stages in the
      transition of type manufacture from a craft to an industrial process, and
      the first appearance of complex mechanical systems for the composition of
      text. A hundred years later, text composition used only the simple
      mechanisms inside laser printers and image-setters, and type manufacture was
      well on the way to becoming a craft process once again; though now with
      computer displays and software replacing steel punches and copper matrices.



      Printers Type In The Twentieth Century is a first edition, written by
      Richard Southall. This book traces the evolution of type manufacture and
      design from hand punch-cutting through hot-metal and photographic
      composition to laser image-setting and the PostScript revolution. The book
      takes a theoretical view of its topic, rather than a simple narrative
      approach. It is intended for readers interested in recent typographic
      history, and the relationships between design methods and production
      technologies in type manufacture.



      Richard Southall has been involved with type and typography since the
      early 1960s; in publishing, composing-machine manufacture and development,
      teaching, research and consultancy. All enthusiasts of typography and its
      fascinating history will enjoy this important work. This book contains 150
      illustrations, and is co-published with The British Library.
