Type : The Secret History of Letters, Hardback Book

Type : The Secret History of Letters Hardback


Type is fashion, type is history. From Gurenberg's first moveable type to the Internet, Simon Loxley weaves the story of letters through the history of our time.

Type has grown out of ambition, jealousy, desire, treachery and love.

Never again will you look at your letters, your bank statements, or your books in the same way.
