Friday Finds - The Art of Lettering

This week a very informative and detailed book from 1947 all about the art of lettering. This being an old book, it smells completely wonderful - warm, dusty and with a hint of granny attic. Inside the pages are stained through time and a little yellow, however the technical information is astounding for such a small book. Each section states the rules that must be followed strictly to achieve beautiful type. For all you type geeks out there, this is a great book with the history of type, monogram examples and letter creation the old fashioned way. Oh so pretty, I shall be geeking out over it this weekend.
