Reproducing many example type sets as well as posters, book pages and art, this review analyses how type design developed in the 20th century. It also looks at how artists and designers applied letterforms in their work, from the Art Nouveau and Futurist influences of the beginning of the century to the impact of the Apple Mac and digital type.
