Twentieth century type designers by Sebastian Carter( Book )
50 editions published between 1987 and 2002 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,046 libraries worldwide
"Since its publication in 1987, Twentieth Century Type Designers has established itself as a standard work for typographers, graphic designers, students, and the interested reader. It was thoroughly revised for the Lund Humphries edition in 1995, and is now issued for the first time in paperback." "Although the skeleton shapes of our alphabet change hardly at all, many skilled designers have devoted much time, sometimes their whole lives, to drawing different versions of the outlines. This book is a clearly written, and jargon-free introduction to the concept of typefaces and to some of the personalities who have created them - Goudy, Rogers, Koch, Gill, Morison, Van Krimpen, Trump, Tschichold, Frutiger, Zapf, Unger, and many others - and sets them against the background of the great changes which have taken place over the last hundred years in the technology of type production."--Jacket

The Rampant Lions Press : a narrative catalogue by Sebastian Carter( Book )
6 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 86 libraries worldwide
"Founded by Will Carter in 1924, the Rampant Lions Press in Cambridge, England, established itself as one of the leading letterpress workshops in the decades after the Second World War. Will was joined by his son Sebastian in the 1960s, and the business became known worldwide for its craftsmanship and design skills. It was not strictly a private press, but rather a small publisher of fine editions and a printer for other publishers. The broad scope of its activities led to working on books by a wide range of authors and artists. For an exhibition of the Press's work at the Fitzwilliam Museum in Cambridge in 1982, Sebastian Carter compiled a catalogue of the books shown. It consisted of 89 titles, about half of the total printed so far. From then until the closure of the Press in 2008, the total grew to 321, and this Catalogue describes them all. There is a detailed description of each book, including its title page, typefaces, papers and bindings, together with any binding variants, and details of any prospectuses produced ... the Catalogue is divided into four sections covering the main periods of the Press's history, and each section is prefaced with the story of that period, so that the book is in effect a history of the Press"--Dust jacket front flap
