For the first time, the history of typography is told in comic strip form Typography confronts us everywhere: in books and newspapers, on road signs, in product packaging, and on political leaflets. It is ubiquitous to the point of mundanity. But while the typeface might be secondary to the message, it remains crucial to the way we respond. Fonts spark emotions; they evoke eras and ideologies. Some, like Edward Johnson's for the London Underground, have become iconic. Others, like Comic Sans, are loathed. Each one has its own place in history. The ABC of Typography traces 3,500 years of type from Sumerian pictographs through Roman calligraphy to Gutenberg, the Bauhaus, and beyond. Brimming with insight and anecdote, this witty and well-informed graphic guide explores the historical, technological, and cultural shifts that have defined the look of the words we read.

Rosemary Sassoon alerts those involved in computer interface design that the skills of layout, spacing and typeface are equally vital in the construction of onscreen layouts as they are on the printed page. This second volume of Computers and Typography reflects the new developments in this rapidly-changing field. It complements, without in any way supplanting, Volume 1.
