A propos de cet article

large octavo, 232 pp. Tolbert Lanston, at the end of the nineteenth century, was a man obsessed with the idea of creating a machine which would provide automated typesetting yet preserve all the nuances of excellence in typography and fine printing. This also is the story of the man and the company that created and manufactured Monotypes for three-quarters of a century. An American Civil War veteran, Lanston has remained a poorly documented hero of the typographic revolution. His Monotype System was the very first digital concept put into daily use in typesetting plants across the globe. The Monotype was a groundbreaking precursor to the computer revolution in the typesetting industry, though it was introduced over seventy years before computerized typesetting systems were developed. Illustrated with more than three hundred photos and illustrations. This volume also includes a beautifully crafted 24-page hand-sewn Monotype letterpress keepsake booklet, Going with Goudy to Philadelphia (pictured below), which has been composed, printed in several colors, and signed by Richard Hopkins. Two corners bumped, else fine and clean. N° de réf. du libraire 22830
