Custom Lettering of the 20s and 30s

Custom Lettering of the 20s and 30s is a celebration of the stunning and stylistically varied headline lettering that existed before the advent of phototypesetting or the computer. This unique publication collects over 4500 examples of custom lettering from the heyday of Art Deco and the experimental modernity of the Futurists - from geometric sans, elegant brush scripts, and heavy industrial serifs to hand-drawn eccentricities. A cornerstone of any type-lover's library.
