"The following notes and drawings will immediately give to the experienced reader some very sound basic information about letters and the use of lettering. Here are principles free frompassing fashion that so often swamp good sense. Although most graphic desi gners and typographers rely on readymade letters in the forms of printing types, matrices on film and transfer sheets, nevertheless their choice of analphabet will be helped by a proper understanding of the art of letter des ign. Moreover since this booklet is equally concerned with the use of letters, with their arrangement into words, and into lines, it will perhaps interest all who are actively involved in the preparation of printed matter." -from the introduction.
