This iconoclastic collection of essays on typography, writing and life is the work of Gerrit Noordzij, a master calligrapher and teacher of lettering and type design. Letterletter was originally a series of 15 issues of a journal published sporadically and distributed to a select few. Letterletter held ”more information on the structure and nature of letterforms than most professional typographers then working had ever seen in their lives.” Robert Bringhurst from the introduction.
