Seen in everything from wedding invitations and birth announcements to IOUs, menus and diplomas, script typefaces impart elegance and sophistication. The hundreds of inventive examples in this book are sure to inspire designers and type nerds everywhere.
Drawn from the Golden Age of scripts (from the 19th to the mid-20th centuries), this is the first compilation (275 illustrations, 254 in color) of popular, rare and forgotten scripts from the United States, Germany, France, England and Italy. Featuring examples from a vast spectrum of sources—advertisements, street signs, type-specimen books and personal letters—this book is an invaluable reference of long-overlooked material.
