Synopsis

Scripts Elegant Lettering from Design's Golden Age by Steven Heller, Louise Fili

From wedding announcements to IOUs, there are hundreds perhaps thousands of scripts, some classic, others eccentric. Derived from handwriting, these are typefaces that are stylized to suggest, imply or symbolize certain traits linked to writing. Drawn from the Golden Age of scripts, from the 19th to the mid-20th century, this is the first compilation of popular, rare and forgotten scripts from Britain, Italy, France, Germany and the USA. This title is filled with examples from a broad spectrum of sources advertising, street signs, invitations, type-specimen books and personal letters. This collection is a delightful trove of long-overlooked material, and will be an invaluable sourcebook for anyone with an interest in graphic design.

Reviews

Heller and Fili's illustrated collection of historical letterforms found in ephemera from around the world will inspire patrons who seek distinct scripts or anyone practicing the art of calligraphy.
