Tony Seddon traces the development of type design and typographic style through a detailed survey of 100 important typefaces, from Nicholas Jensons early use of Roman letterforms in the mid 15th century to Selva, a blackletter typeface designed in 2012. For each design, Seddon describes its creator and its development, and provides examples of the typeface and a large, annotated illustration of a capital and a lower-case letter showing their distinctive typographical elements and innovations.
