This unique publication collects over 4,500 examples of custom lettering from the heyday of Art Deco and the experimental modernity of the Futurists—from geometric sans, elegant brush scripts, and heavy industrial serifs to hand-drawn eccentricities and outré display type. A cornerstone of any type-lovers library.
