A Specimen Portfolio of Wood Type in the Cary Collection

by Melbert B. Cary, Jr. Graphic Arts Collection, David P. Wall, R. Roger Remington
Price: $19.95

Wood type in myriad designs—from stark condensed sans serifs to bizarre ornamental scripts—created variety in commercial advertising more than 180 years ago, and continues today to influence modern signs, posters, and billboards. The Melbert B. Cary, Jr. Graphic Arts Collection at RIT maintains an impressive collection of wood type, numbering over 300 fonts. This book showcases over 250 of our best wood type specimens, including many complete fonts and samples from unusual designs.
