A Short History of the Printed Word


Chappell, Warren


Nonpareil books, Boston. 1980. xviii, 244 pp. + xv (Index). Large 8vo. Soft bound. Spine worn, former owner’s signature (Christer Hellmark). Illustrated in black and white. Warren Chappell [1904–1991], a former student of Rudolf Koch and designer of typefaces Trajanus and Lydian, gives the best survey of the written word in print. This is not a plain book on the history of printing but rather an effort to recapitulate the essential story of western calligraphy and printing. It is a story of how men and materials have developed the art of written and printed communication. With more than 200 illustrations the lively narrative of the printed word is exemplified.
