"Ideas travelled in both directions across the Atlantic. American founders devised wholly original new typefaces and these were imported into Britain; yet the development of expertise in designing with these new faces depended on printers learning from one another, and the first scheme of specimen exchange that successfully achieved this was wholly devised and administered from London." "Richly illustrated with letterforms, engravings, drawings and the reproduction of over 250 items of ephemera, this is a book for collectors, students, design historians and all those with an interest in the visual arts."--Jacket." ;
