NOM DE FICHIER: The little book of typographic ornament.pdf
The little book of typographic ornament. Jury, David, author. David Jury presents a beautiful and varied collection of typographic ornaments sourced from specimen books of type foundries, dating from 1700. He explains how the need for typographic ornaments arose and developed, and sets them in their historical context. The chapters cover natural forms; geometric forms; rules and borders ...
Therefore, the book's only shortcomings in addition to the lack of full color are the absence of context, as previously stated, and the limited number of figures showing art in actual use. That said, in terms of return on investment and breadth of content, The Little Book of Typographic Ornament is a resource that should not be missed.
