Typophile Chap Book #28. "The third calligraphic chap book, and the most ambitious. In 1952-53 twenty-five graphic artists were invited to contribute (read: assigned) texts taken from Harvard University Press' 'Graphic Forms'. All inscriptions had to fit the same procrustean proportions and page size, of course; though in the end some inscriptions had to be reduced. A 'Who's Who' at end - short biographies of the contributors..." Rathe, Bibliography of the Typophile Chap Books 1935-1992, #28. Designed by Raymond Da Boll. Spine slightly faded and cloth dust soiled.
