Rosens is the standard reference to the hot metal typefaces that have served us well and aesthetically for half a millennium. These styles may shame some of our present designers into a thought for legibility, grace, charm, hygiene. We need photocomposition in these days of high wages. We can (barely) tolerate the mud dabs belching out of desk tops. All that could be much improved by a perusal of this book. Annotation(c) 2003 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com
