By Stanley Morison [1889-1967]

Perhaps most well known as the designer of the typeface, Times New Roman, Stanley Morison was also a founding member of the Fleuron Society, and editor of The Fleuron (the society’s typographical journal published from 1923 to 1930), which he began with Oliver Simon. Morison had a distinguished career and holds a lasting influence on typography.

After a brief essay on Morison by Beatrice Warde, and an introduction by John Dreyfus, a wonderful collection of essays by Morison is presented. Essays are on the history of type classification and related literature published on the subject and, of course, on the subject of letterforms themselves.
