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.
