Printer's Devil : The Life and Work of Frederic Warde, Hardback Book

Printer's Devil : The Life and Work of Frederic Warde Hardback


Today, the book and type designer Frederic Warde is chiefly remembered for his collaboration with Stanley Morison, (designer of the Times New Roman font) for his creation of the singular typeface Arrighi.Although his life was short (he died in 1939 at the age of just 45), he had pursued a peripatetic, rollercoaster career that saw him come into contact with nearly all the leading players in the field - including Bruce Rogers, Mardersteig, Updike, Ruzicka, George Macy, and, of course, Morison."Printer's Devil" draws on a wide range of surviving documentation to piece together a fascinating picture of Warde's often complex life during a critical period in the history of design, type, and printing.
