In some ways, The Art of Wood Type is this generation’s American Wood Type. The book starts off with some scattered history on wood type and features some artists who use letterpress blocks to print and as art in and of themselves. The back half of the book is dedicated to photos of wood type alphabets and vector recreations of the prints. The book features some very rare ornamental typefaces, it is a treat to see them in print.
