A traditional overview of typeface classifications, and how letterform details differentiate specific typefaces into different classes. When I first picked it up in 1984, I used it as an index for further research. Today, it serves me as a reference and reminder of what the typeface landscape looked like just before the personal computer era started.

Herbert Spencer
