Modern Typography: An Essay in Critical History

Robin Kinross

Translated by Min Choi

Modern typography

The following blurb is from the website of the original English publisher, Hyphen Press, London:

A brisk tour through the history of Western typography, from the time (c.1700 in France and England) when it can be said to have become “modern.” A spotlight is directed at different cultures in different times, to trace the developments and shifts in modern typography. Attention is given to ideas, to social context, and to technics, thus stepping over the limited and tired tropes of stylistic analysis. The second edition is now published.
