Typography. Sweet, sweet Typography. Today’s finds are: The Elements of Typographic Style (WorldCat), The ITC Typeface Collection (WorldCat), and The Typographic Book: 1450-1935 (WorldCat). I went looking for Elements in the Arts Library and didn’t find it in the stacks. Our online catalog said it was not checked out so I thought, “Maybe it’s in the oversize section”. I made my way down two floors and searched the oversize section to no avail. Instead, I stumbled on the other two books. Oof, these boys were large! I decided to check them out and take them with me at any rate. And since I had to pass by where I originally looked for Elements, I thought I’d look for it one more time. And what do you know? I found it. Persistence is a virtue I always have to work at but it usually pays off.
I’ve got a set of 30 pictures on Flickr. These three books are definitely my favorite find so far.
