For those interested in lettering, calligraphy or typography, we have a copy of The Design and Spacing of Lettering by Ailsa Craig, former instructress of lettering at Glasgow School of Art.
Published by Blackie and Son in 1948, this book is comprised of 64 pages of typical types of mid-20th century lettering with a final chapter on illumination. This title was kindly donated to GSA Library following the Mackintosh Library fire of 23 May 2014 by Andy Mackay. It was originally in the collection of Allan Glen’s School at University of Strathclyde.
If you’d like a closer look at this title, or any other title in special collections, that can be arranged by appointment through the request a viewing form.
